A recent survey revealed that more than half of Brits would like to reduce their carbon footprint after lockdown.

A survey, conducted by Giki, an app development firm focusing on environmental impact showed that ‘More than half of Britons want to become greener after the lockdown’.

During lockdown, the country has hit various milestones relating to renewable energy, its use of fossil fuels and air pollution. As a result, 33% of Brits in the survey say they have become more aware of their impact on the environment.

In addition, over 50% of adults in the survey said they aim to be more eco-friendly after lockdown.

Results also showed that 64% of people in Great Britain said they would prefer to take small steps, rather than make big changes in reducing their carbon footprint and leading a greener lifestyle.

The survey was undertaken as part of the Giki Zero web app which enables users to calculate their carbon footprint based on various choices relating to transport, shopping, food and other services.

As many people have been forced to work from home during the pandemic, the number of cars on the road has been reduced dramatically. It is thought that remote working is expected to be implemented in many workplaces following successful trials and its long-term impact could be significant.
