Emissions

Harmful emissions can also be called greenhouse gases. In basic terms, greenhouse gases are gases that trap heat in the Earth's atmosphere. Increases in emissions and greenhouse gases have been correlated to climate change and have been shown to have negative consequences. For more information on climate change, visit the Climate Change Science Home Page. The main greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and fluorinated gases. Many of these gases are emitted through normal organization functions, but can be reduced. Creating less wasteful emissions will help the environment and your bottom line. An easy way to begin cutting down on these harmful emissions is using Energy Star rated equipment.
