Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Greenhouse gases are thought to be making our planet warmer by damaging our protective atmosphere. A warmer planet could be dangerous for the environment.

Most greenhouse gases are generated by burning fossil fuels to produce energy in the following ways:

  • Large generators burn coal, oil or gas to produce electricity, which is used in homes, businesses and industry.
  • People in their homes burn gas for heating, cooling or cooking.
  • Cars and other vehicles are powered by burning fuels made from oil or gas.

At Origin Energy, we are reducing greenhouse gases in four areas:

  • Gas and oil exploration and production,
  • Electricity generation,
  • Gas distribution; and
  • Customer use.

We have developed plans in these areas, which will save more than one million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year.
