Together we can make a difference to climate change

Thursday Nov 04, 2021

The world’s political leaders are currently getting together in Glasgow to discuss climate change at COP26.

That’s why the Co-op Group are hosting Co-op26, the climate event for everyone.

We’ve partnered with the global movement, Count Us In, so together we can do our bit to fight climate change. Below are three actions that can make a big difference and we’re asking you to pledge to take climate action and share it with friends.

Tell your politicians

Speak or write to your local MP so they understand your concern about climate change and how they can be part of the solution. The Co-op Group have drafted this letter to make it easy.

Eat more plants

Eating more plant-based food is one way to address climate change and also great for your health. Check out our recipe

Cut food waste

Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by only buying what you need and using up the food you have at home.






An even bigger difference…

Count Us In has more possible steps we can all take to tackle climate change as a community.

You don’t need to research what works and what doesn’t. These are the 16 steps that count. Read more here.
