Climate Action and Solutions

NOW is the time to act to reduce the impacts of Climate Change.

The UK has legislated to reduce emissions by 57% by 2030 (reduction below 1990 levels). That’s just 12 years from now.

Each of us has a responsibility to act NOW.

We must act individually as well as encouraging others incl. friends, family, colleagues, employers, politicians, planners.

There’s often frustration about so little focus on solutions. But that’s starting to change.


Working on solutions around energy is one of our key motivations here at TEC.

100 Solutions to Reverse Global Warming

Drawdown is that point in time when the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere begins to decline on a year-to-year basis.

Project Drawdown is the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming.

“We did not make or devise the plan—the plan exists and is being implemented worldwide. It has been difficult to envision this possibility because the focus is overwhelmingly on the impacts of climate change. We gathered a qualified and diverse group of researchers from around the world to identify, research, and model the 100 most substantive, existing solutions to address climate change. What was uncovered is a path forward that can roll back global greenhouse gas emissions within thirty years. The research revealed that humanity has the means and techniques at hand. Nothing new needs to be invented, yet many more solutions are coming due to purposeful human ingenuity. The solutions we modelled are in place and in action. Humanity’s task is to accelerate the knowledge and growth of what is possible as soon as possible.”
