Awareness is growing throughout the United States that global warming is a serious problem and that serious action is required to limit emissions of greenhouse gases. Energy-related activities account for the vast majority of greenhouse gas emissions, with carbon dioxide (CO2) from fossil fuel combustion contributing approximately 80 percent of total U.S. emissions. These emissions result from generating the energy used in our homes (19%), in commercial buildings (16%), in industry (33%), and for transportation (32%). Other activities cause emissions of additional greenhouse gases, such as methane and perfluorocarbons (PFCs). While emitted in smaller quantities, these gases are important to address due to their greater impact per molecule in trapping heat in the Earth's atmosphere. Fortunately, a number of opportunities exist for working in partnership with businesses and organizations across the country to enhance investment in attractive, yet underutilized technologies and practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has developed public private partnerships that focus on the following opportunities to take action.
