Abstract: Global warming is a major environmental concern in most major cities across the world today. If the situation continues to worsen, severe problems that can threaten human lives will occur in the near future. Anthropogenic activities have further aggravated the problem by releasing excessive amount of greenhouse gases into the already fragile environment. Hence, there is an urgent need for countries to come up with solutions to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. With One-North as the object of study, this research studies the carbon dioxide emissions in different parts of One-North. It researched on how different environments and natural features can significantly contributes to the decrease of the quantity of carbon dioxide in the air. To achieve this, four objectives were developed. The first objective was to find out if heavier traffic will result in more carbon dioxide. The second objective was to test if industrial area has higher carbon dioxide emission as compared with a business area. The third objective was to examine if water features and greenery will result in lower carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere. Lastly, the fourth objective was to investigate if a built up area will result in more carbon dioxide than a green area. The findings of the experiments were compared and analysed together with literature review. The research involved collecting data (carbon dioxide readings) and doing traffic surveys in the premises of One-North. Certain days with no rainfall were then selected for further analysis. A major highlight obtained from the field measurements showed that two different spots with close proximity with each other could have a very significant difference in the amount of carbon dioxide. This is due to the additional natural features near one of the spots. This could conclude that greenery do reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere significantly. Further analysis of data will be discussed in this dissertation with major findings and recommendations were included as well.
