Our vision

Being green hasn’t always seemed easy, but when you have a community supporting you, sharing their ideas and listening to yours, things start to change. Team Green Britain brings people together to make life better. We believe that when we act together, sustainable choices aren’t difficult choices at all: they are just new ways of doing things. We launched Team Green Britain to support the low carbon vision of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. EDF Energy and London 2012 are working to create a more sustainable Games through innovative design, community regeneration and low-carbon technology. Through Team Green Britain we are helping our members to make everyday life better and more sustainable as well.

Our aim is simple: help people do things differently when it comes to their home, travel and food, the three areas that account for more than 50% of your carbon footprint. Our Team Green Britain Heroes are already taking big steps to lower carbon in their own lives and in their communities. On this site, you'll find plenty of ideas to help you do the same.
