We all have a part to play in reducing carbon emissions
We’ve created The Great Collaboration Toolkit to help you identify how you can reduce your emissions. We’ve identified over 60 different actions you can take. We have assessed them by their cost and level of carbon reduction. These actions make up the Toolkit, which features options suitable for all individual circumstances. For instance, once you’ve chosen the actions you’d like to take, we’ll help support you with ideas and information that will allow you to successfully reduce your carbon emissions.
There is wholesale agreement that humans are having a catastrophic negative impact on the planet. The gov.uk website states that climate change is happening and is due to human activity, this includes global warming and greater risk of flooding, droughts and heat waves.
Alongside this we are facing huge losses in animal and plant species both in the UK and across the globe.
Many national governments have signed up to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions which scientists agree are causing these problems, and many county and parish councils have declared “Climate and Ecological Emergencies”.
As individuals, businesses, organisations and communities there are many ways in which we can take actions in support of these local and national commitments. By using the Toolkit you can be part of the solution reducing carbon emissions.
