The instep programme

Your daily activities produce greenhouse gases either directly, from sources that are controlled by you, or indirectly, from sources controlled by others but as a consequence of your actions.

The Instep programme will give you the tools to monitor and manage your carbon footprint. It will also give you advice and tips on how to reduce your impact on the environment.

Our regular monthly personal reports will help motivate you to manage your emissions on an ongoing basis and will enable you to record the difference that you are making.

It will probably save you money as well. Find out more by selecting the programme most relevant to you.

What's different about us

The global threat of this problem is one that we are all becoming increasingly aware of.

While most of us are pitching in by recycling and switching lightbulbs, the global problem seems huge and it is hard to see or understand what our own small contribution can make.

There is an old Chinese proverb that states ‘every journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step’ and we believe that this is relevant in combatting the effects of climate change. You can make a big difference by your own actions and the more people that make a positive first step the greater the impact.
