Zero Emissions Day
Zero Emissions Day is held on September 21. This event in the third decade of the month September is annual. Help us
The importance of Zero Emissions Day is immense since this movement has everyone’s best interest at heart – we can all start making small changes that will contribute to making the world a better place and help preserve life on our planet.
There's more carbon dioxide in our atmosphere than at any time in human history. We're on the path to exceeding 1.5C of warming. Extreme heat events have become more frequent and severe. Put simply, net zero means we are not adding new emissions to the atmosphere.
The purpose of this day is to give our planet a break from fossil fuels and what they release into the air, at least for one day, every year. This encompasses greenhouse gasses, polluting substances, microparticles, and other things that are harming our planet. The importance of Zero Emissions Day is paramount because it aims to encourage the use of renewable energy sources, as opposed to finite fossil fuels.
