WHY 16 STEPS?

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed. To not know where to begin - or what changes really make a difference.

These 16 Steps have been selected with experts from the UN Environment Programme based on 3 criteria: their impact on your personal carbon pollution, their power to influence leaders and their ability to involve everyone.

You don’t need to research what works and what doesn’t. These are the 16 steps that count.
