Anthropogenic effects, processes, objects, or materials are those that are derived from human activities, as opposed to those occurring in natural environments without human influences.

For instance, it is widely believed that the production of carbon dioxide is the primary factor driving anthropogenic climate change. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthropogenic
