CLIMATE TECH INFOGRAPHIC: What is a Gigaton?
Aeroseal’s Climate Tech Targets a Top Contributor to Climate Change
Every year, the world generates 33.1 billion metric tons (gigatons) of carbon dioxide. Homes and buildings are one of the largest sources contributing to these annual carbon emissions.
“Buildings are just one area where we must drive a lot of innovation if we’re going to avoid climate disaster.” — Bill Gates
If Aeroseal’s climate technologies are applied to most of the world’s homes and buildings, we can shrink carbon emissions by 1 gigaton every year. This is our company’s mission, in fact. But what does that mean?
The infographic below visualizes the actual size of a gigaton of carbon dioxide by equating it to other items. It reinforces how urgent our mission has become and why the world’s business leaders have identified buildings as a critical threat to humanity based on their contribution to climate change.
This urgency is why Aeroseal recently secured funding, we’re accelerating our plans to help us reach our gigaton goal.
