Cutting Carbon Now is a Green Alliance project advocating immediate action across the UK economy to drastically reduce the UK’s contribution to climate change. 
 
We are collaborating with many other climate-focused organisations, to amplify and align messages, and persuade the government that new policies are needed and possible now.
 
This page provides details on this project's recent activities.

Cutting Carbon Now is supported by the Network for Social Change.
