The average carbon footprint of a UK citizen from Feb 2019 to June 2022 was 12.26 tonnes of Co2e; double the global average. By the end of 2024, the UK figure is expected to be around 8.8 tonnes. 
What is your carbon footprint? Use the WWF Carbon Footprint Calculator to find out.


Our emissions can be grouped into five categories, split as follows: Food (14%), Home (23%), Travel (23%), Buying (18%) and Government Spending (22%). We have significant control over the first four categories and can influence Government Spending by lobbying and voting.

Sevenoaks Climate Action Network is here to save you time and money by gathering the wealth of resources already out there in Sevenoaks and beyond, helping you to lower your carbon footprint. We don't want to reinvent the wheel so the links below will take you to our favourite sources and lead you to the best advice. Once a year, we hold a Climate Fair to showcase some of these options.
