The Public Carbon Literacy Program

CARBON SAVVY IS A NEW PROGRAM TO RAPIDLY IMPROVE PUBLIC CARBON LITERACY IN THE FACE OF THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY.

It provides a practical and effective bridge between public concerned for the Climate Emergency and civic action. It provides simple, understandable and clear carbon information which is the first step to carbon reduction, in a positive and hopeful way.

Carbon Savvy’s Mission

Carbon Savvy’s mission is to transform carbon literacy in the UK in 2020 and to generate carbon behaviour change so we can reach carbon net-zero by 2030. We believe carbon literacy is a critical first step in individual carbon reduction.

Helping Council’s Respond to The Climate Emergency

CARBON SAVVY HAS CREATED A PACKAGE SPECIFICALLY TO SUPPORT LOCAL AUTHORITIES, TO HELP THEIR RESIDENTS TO RAISE THEIR CARBON LITERACY AND TO REDUCE THEIR CARBON FOOTPRINTS.

Many Councils are currently focusing on their carbon footprint as a priority and have little bandwidth to provide structured, impact researched and well-designed advice to their residents in a cost-effective way. Carbon Savvy aims to fill this gap by providing a turnkey solution for Local Authorities to start to educate their residents, without having to invest significant amounts of time or resources. The solution is quick to deploy and fits well with Climate Emergency Response Plans.

Making careful choices in each of these areas can improve your quality of life.

The Carbon Savvy Handy Guide

AS A CRITICAL COMPONENT OF THIS PROGRAM, CARBON SAVVY IS CREATING A ‘HANDY GUIDE’ TO SAVING CO2, WHICH CAN BE READ COVER-TO-COVER IN UNDER AN HOUR.

It contains a simple, comprehensive explanation of the significant components of personal carbon footprints and the things you can focus on first to have the fastest and most substantial reduction.

The Guide is designed to be co-branded with the Local Authority, with the front and back covers being customisable, as well as the inside front and back providing an introduction from the Council leader or officers to the guide. The Guide has been designed to fit through letterboxes and is printed on 100% recycled paper.
