Everyday people across the UK are going #OneStepGreener – helping cut carbon emissions and make the UK and the wider world a greener, cleaner place. ​

We’re doing better than we might think at tackling climate change – driven not just by politicians and activists, but by individuals, community leaders and businesses playing their part too. People across the country are going #OneStepGreener ahead of COP26 and making positive environmental choices, every day. ​

Perhaps it’s a school that’s going above and beyond in greening their communal areas. Or a distillery that’s trying to go zero carbon. Or a small business that’s making the switch to low-carbon energy. Other people are buying electric cars or embarking on careers in green industries. It might even be a combination of multiple #OneStepGreener actions – this is about us all doing our bit.

The UK’s #OneStepGreener Climate Leaders instinctively see the wider benefits of doing these things – that a greener way of life means a healthier population, more jobs and a sustainable future for us all.

Meet some of our #OneStepGreener Climate Leaders and learn how they are making change in their daily lives:
