Find out how your carbon footprint is generated
Some of our everyday actions also contribute to greenhouse gas emissions.
Cooking in an oven generates 400 g of carbon dioxide per hour
What produces these emissions?
Each oven's emissions depend on its energy efficiency. An oven with a low energy rating consumes 20% more than an efficient one, resulting in a similar increase in emissions.
What actions can lower these emissions?
Review an appliance's energy rating when buying a new one. The oven is not the most power-hungry appliance, but some practices can make it less efficient. For example, opening the door while it is on causes it to lose a lot of its stored heat. It's also beneficial to take advantage of its heat to make multiple dishes.
