The protocol aims at reducing four greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and sulphur hexafluoride) and two groups of gases, hydrofluorocarbons and perfluorocarbons, produced by them. They are both very sensitive to light but only chlorophyll responds to light by bringing water and carbon dioxide together to form chemical energy in the form of sugar. Encourage Telecommuting-Each week, give your employees at least one day to telecommute. This is a DIY project that can be completed in a few weekends for a comparatively small amount of money. An assessment usually takes about an hour and you will be given a written report of your findings, and suggestions for improvement

At present, such systems are costly, but the government provides tax relief to home owners who invest in such systems. However, in business, everything comes down to dollars and cents. Here at Enigin, we have built our entire business around this one issue. Many recently build homes are specifically designed to have greater exposure to the sun and to retain more of the light and heat that fall on it

There is a huge debate about the value of an offset. The advocates of sustainability might argue that a ‘green’ product or service is only sustainable if it is accepted and used by all. The third type is when a company chooses to buy what are called carbon offsets

There are a number of professional opportunities available, which may make it a little overwhelming since it is such a new area of expertise, but there is a flip side. Green building is a growing segment of the new home and home renovation market. Traditional jobs that are found in most industries like communications, sales and marketing, IT, accounting are found in the renewable energy sector in addition to careers that are individualized to this industry

If biofuel is ever to become a true alternative to fossil fuels, a way is needed out of this quandary. This is usually done with a solution of water mixed with white distilled vinegar. Since algae take in, rather than produce, carbon dioxide, the very foodstock being used to create biofuel can itself be a cause for a reduction in a significant greenhouse gas. If you are constructing a new house, then this is the best time to implement green technology. Using green energy saves money and preserves the earth

Self Employed – Using the do it yourself guides discussed in the first section, you can easily build your own windmills and solar cells, with the learning curve being so easy that even a child could do it. Many people make a decent living from this each year, especially those who live in choice regions for green renewable energy, such as along the coast for harnessing wind or anyone with extra unused land. Home or business can harness electrical energy from the sun using solar panels which consist of photovoltaic cells that convert energy from the sun into electricity. Natures wind force is yet another source of green, powering water pumps for centuries, but have now grown in popularity to supplement home and business energy needs
