How Your Co-op Provides an ethical edge

Every month Your Co-op business broadband customers help to fund climate projects as part of their bundles, to reduce up to 10kg of their monthly carbon footprint. A service that continues for as long as you're in contract, so a typical 24-month broadband contract will reduce 240kg of CO2 from the atmosphere. 

We also plant trees throughout your contract, which will contribute to future decarbonisation when the trees mature in 10-20 years' time.
