Our travel and transport choices have a big impact on the environment. However, there are some simple (and not so simple) things that you can do to save money and reduce your carbon footprint when it comes to your travel.

Home Energy

The energy we use to light, heat and cook with in our homes is becoming increasingly expensive and is also about the biggest source of our personal carbon emissions. We need to insulate and stop wasting money and energy.


The pace of life these days can be frantic, and we all like to indulge ourselves now and again. But leisure and lifestyle choices don’t have to come with a high price tag or cost the earth. Small changes really can make an important difference.

Ethical Trading

Ethical trading is the practice of buying or selling products and services that are produced in a way that minimises social and/or environmental damage, whilst avoiding products and services that have a negative impact.

Green Commission

The Green Commission met between 2014 and 2015 and published their final report February 2016. This section gives details of the six hearings and other events and contains the final report.
