Impact guidance

Impact guidance is based on averages for UK individuals. The impact calculations, source of supporting information and assumptions used, can be found at the foot of each individual action page. Please click on each action to explore further. 


These impact figures are based on averages and will not be accurate for everyone. For instance, if you don’t fly, making a commitment to fly less will have no impact. Equally if you drive a lot of miles each week, switching your car for public transport may be the most impactful action you can take. 


Despite this clear variation, we wanted to presented this average impact so people can quickly get a feel for which actions are likely to have the biggest impact on climate change. 


If you’ve got any questions, concerns or suggestions about the impact of any action, please get in touch and we’ll try to get back to you as soon as we can.
