Sowing the seeds - you can make a greener broadband choice today

As a co-op our commitment is to a fairer, better world which is why we’re working hard at how we can reduce the impact of broadband by creating a low carbon alternative.

In the medium term this requires us to switch to full fibre broadband, something that’s not possible for everyone today as the new full fibre infrastructure gets rolled out in the UK.

Our work with Ecologi offsets emissions through verified carbon credits, and also supports the planting of trees around the world.

Every month Your Co-op Broadband will fund projects to offset 50Kg of our climate positive broadband customers' carbon footprint (that's about 5% of the footprint of an average person in the UK). That continues for as long as you use our services, so a typical 24 month contract will see us offset 1.2 tonnes of CO2. 

We'll also plant a tree each month for every customer which will contribute to future decarbonisation when the trees mature in 10-20 years time.

What does 50kg of CO2e look like?

It may be hard to visualise what this impact compares to, so some examples are:

  • Taking the tube all the way around the London Circle line 67 times
  • Taking a train from London to Manchester and back, twice
  • Leaving your Smart TV on for 6 months
