The environmental impact of transport is significant because transport is a major user of energy, and burns most of the world's petroleum. This creates air pollution, including nitrous oxides and particulates, and is a significant contributor to global warming through emission of carbon dioxide.

Here are some action you can take to reduce carbon emissions:

  • Switch to public transport

  • Switch to riding a bike or walking

  • Switch to hybrid or electric car

  • Request to work from home where possible

  • Buy carbon offsets when you fly
