Action needs to be taken
Together, we can solve the climate crisis.
The global average carbon footprint is 5,000 kg CO₂e per person.* This figure represents lots of people worldwide whose lives produce smaller emissions than this, and lots of people who produce greater emissions. If we want to stop global warming at the critical threshold of 1.5 degrees, we must all do our part to lower the average carbon footprint drastically — it must go down to 2,500 kg CO₂e by 2030, and to just 700 kg CO₂e by 2050.
