How to reduce the Internet and emails' carbon footprint
The internet is central to our personal and working lives, allowing us to share messages, videos, photos, music and more, all from the palm of our hands. However, our internet usage and online habits significantly affect climate change, contributing to 3.7% of the world's total carbon emissions, worryingly similar to the aviation industry.
This is why it's vital to switch to climate-positive broadband
to reduce your carbon footprint far beyond your home's internet use. Not to mention Your Co-op Broadband
provides award-winning customer service
and reliably fast speeds of up to 900Mbps

How can Your Co-op Broadband reduce my carbon footprint?
Learning about the carbon footprint of our digital habits can make us feel powerless against the necessity of the internet, but Your Co-op Broadband provides a simple solution to help break this cycle.
Switching to Your Co-op Broadband reduces your monthly carbon footprint
by 10kg and plants a tree, so a typical 24-month contract will reduce 240kg of CO2
just for switching. Thanks to our climate impact partners Ecologi
, we can make it simple and easy for customers to live more sustainably.
Each month, your climate-positive broadband actions a funding contribution that's sent to Ecologi's carbon reduction projects and reforestation sites around the world. This funding equates to 10kg of CO2 reduced per broadband customer and a tree planted for future decarbonisation.
In total, our average user's broadband emits a monthly figure of 2.6kg of CO2 each month, factoring in a wide range of uses at home, the internal servers, the router, and the engineering resources. That means your broadband reduces carbon by almost 4x the amount it's produced, so the climate and world are better off. We have even made a technical breakdown of how we cut your carbon
so you can find out more about how our service is climate positive.
