  4. Set reduction goals: Establish clear, measurable goals for reducing carbon emissions, based on your data.
  5. Identify reduction strategies: Evaluate different strategies for reducing emissions, such as increasing energy efficiency, using renewable energy sources, and reducing transportation-related emissions.
  6. Implement reduction strategies: Implement the strategies that are most likely to achieve your goals.
