All things carbon cutting in Cumbria

The Zero Carbon Cumbria website is a hub for carbon reduction action, giving you information about the impact of climate change here in the county and what’s being done about it. It showcases some great examples of what people are doing, and will hopefully inspire others to join in the journey to net zero.

Whether you’re an organisation that could participate in the Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership, a community group that could link in with the Cumbria Sustainability Network, or an individual business or household looking for ways to cut your carbon footprint, you’ll hopefully find the information and links you need to get started.

Feature your organisation!

If your organisation is taking action to reduce carbon emissions, tell us about it so we can feature it in the news or features sections.
