Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the greenhouse gas most generated by human activities. The heat-trapping potential of other greenhouse gases is expressed in CO2-equivalents (CO2e). This facilitates comparison between different greenhouse gases, and allows for their inclusion in emission-reduction programmes.
