low carbon choices


Climate change can feel like a problem that is so much bigger than us and too big to fix.

But there are steps we can all make to take control and create better lives for ourselves and future generations. And if we all make low carbon choices to how we live - together, we can make a BIG impact for Cornwall and our planet.

Changing how we think and behave can be challenging, and some changes are easier than others.

There are lots of things we can do to reduce our carbon footprint and make a difference. Some of them are small and easier to do, other things are more complicated and take more effort.


"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed individuals can change the world. In face, it's the only thing that ever has."
Margaret Mead



The world is changing and we need to change with it. The impacts of climate change are already being felt all over the world. Here in Cornwall we have seen unprecedented flooding and unseasonable weather in the last few years. We must all now do something.

The IPCC concludes in their Climate Change 2021 report, that:

  • global warming is very likely to reach 1.5°C by 2040
  • there is still time to limit the worst effects of climate change.

We can all do something, however small.

Visit the Carbon Neutral Cornwall Hive Ideas Bank and watch our film 'The future is in your hands' on the right of this page, for ideas and suggestions for how you can reduce your carbon impact and help Cornwall to become carbon neutral.

There are websites that help you to measure your carbon footprint and give you ways to help reduce it. Here are some suggestions:

Cornwall Climate Commitments

We will be working with partners, organisations, local councils, businesses and community groups to co-design a series of Cornwall Climate Commitments.

We want to hear from as many people as possible about how they will or are already doing things differently to play their part in helping Cornwall to become carbon neutral (Net Zero Carbon).

We will gather everyone's climate commitments and share them, so we can all help each other to change My world for Our planet.

We will be at the St Austell Climate Festival on 27 November, at St Austell College, where there will be stalls, films and speakers, along with help, guidance and ideas on what you can do to help tackle climate change. So come along and let us know what your Climate Commitments are.

Please complete our short form below to let us know how you are willing to play your part in helping Cornwall become carbon neutral.
