Transportation: a significant way to reduce our carbon footprint

I am still relatively new to the idea of being sustainable and reducing my personal carbon footprint, as well as the carbon footprint of the businesses I work in and with.  This means that I don’t take a scientific approach necessarily, but more of a business related one.  For me, any changes I undertake have to be financially sustainable, as well as easy to adapt, or I won’t be able to make them. 

One key area, that generates a large percentage of emissions, is transportation.  Luckily, this is also an area where, as consumers, we have a great deal of choice. Consumers, also in great part, drive the market. So where there is demand, products will be made. I encourage businesses of all sizes to think about the frequency and types of transportation they are using and how they could modify it to reduce the impact on the environment.
