Groundwork East is working with the Suffolk Climate Change Partnership to help communities and individuals reduce their carbon footprints.

To make this accessible to all, we are focusing on everyday actions that we can all take that not only reduce our carbon footprints but will also save you money on your energy and water bills (if you have a water meter).

The survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete, after you have completed it, we encourage you to have a look at the available advice guides for more information.

In 3-4 months’ time we will ask you to re-take the survey to see if you have been able to undertake any of the actions.

The survey is anonymous however, we do ask that you provide the first line of your address so that we can compare the before and after surveys.
