Individuals and households

Every one of us can take steps to reduce our carbon emissions and make net-zero possible. 31% of emissions in Cambridge are from heating and powering homes and 20% are from transport, so any steps that you take to reduce your carbon footprint will make a contribution. You can use the carbon footprint calculator to better understand your emissions and then pledge to take actions, or you can go straight to the pledge itself.
