What you can do

Making changes that matter

These 16 steps are the most effective way to reduce your carbon pollution and persuade others to do the same.

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.
