Ahead of the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Co-operatives UK commissioned research into the climate activity of co-ops in the UK and what support was needed.
This involved a review of the Top 100 co-ops’ climate strategies, net zero and/or carbon reduction targets, as well as an online survey which had 88 responses from small to medium sized co-ops.
Our report reveals that two thirds of co-ops are taking some form of climate action and of those taking action, one in five have net zero targets.
Download our report and declaration on behalf of the UK co-op sector, our asks of government and our pledge to take effective climate action, in our own businesses and as a co-operative movement. We've also provided social media graphics to use when sharing this message.
