Greenhouse gases are gases that absorb infrared radiation and radiate heat. Human activities are responsible for almost all the increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere over the last 150 years. This is the main cause of global climate change.
The University is responsible for the direct or indirect emission of greenhouse gases from different sources. Some important emission sources are the use of electricity, fuels for stationary and transport purposes, business travel, commuting, waste to landfill, and construction.
