We want to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) entering the atmosphere by keeping carbon stored naturally.
Whilst atmospheric CO2 increases global temperatures, it also reduces the air quality and endangers our health. This CO2 is absorbed by our oceans, making the water composition more acidic, inhibiting the ability for sea creatures to build shells.
Keeping carbon stored in the ground (particularly in coal and oil deposits) limits these harmful changes to our environment. Planet Ark helps Australians?take positive steps by promoting the use of energy-efficient products, carbon positive materials and making it easy to choose greener sources of energy.
