CARBON. We need to talk about carbon.
Helpful tips on ways to decarbonise our daily lives, how to measure carbon footprints, pondering the meaning of Net Zero, Juliet and Simon look back at history and grill two experts on our actions in the past, today, and how to work towards a greener world when it comes to greenhouse gases.
“… the beauty of finding ways that work is finding those things with co-benefits, things that you can change in your life that will reduce your (carbon) footprint but also bring a better additional benefit to you. So for me, a great example we're getting more and more is about insulating your homes or your offices so that they use less and less energy. The less energy you use, the smaller your bills.” Charlie Cotton.
