At Home

Energy use

20% of the UK’s emissions are down to how we heat, light and cook in our homes. 

Making changes at home will not only help reduce your home’s carbon footprint but can save money on your bills.  

Switch energy suppliers

Visit the Energy Saving Trust website for more information about switching energy suppliers.
