Welcome To One Less Tonne

Through a number of key actions at home and on the road, you can create significantly less greenhouse gas pollution, and often save money at the same time.

The scientific community has confirmed that human-caused greenhouse gas emissions are the main cause of climate change, yet Canadians are still among the highest producers of greenhouse gas pollution in the world. While many countries have taken real steps to cut their emissions, Canada’s emissions have continued to soar.
