Eight out of ten Brits say they have or are planning to do something to lower their greenhouse gas emissions within the next five years.

Net Zero is one of the world’s answers to stopping climate change and the UK is the first major economy to pass legislation that commits the country to net zero emissions by 2050.

The research by Ipsos MORI  for Net Zero Week (17-23 July), found when tackling their emissions, the majority of UK households have or plan to make practical lifestyle changes such as walking and cycling more, consuming less energy and recycling more, offsetting emissions with women ( 63%) leading the way compared to 55% of men.
