European Climate Pact

Individual pledging

All Europeans can take practical, everyday steps to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to more sustainable living.

Take action for the climate

The European Climate Pact and the global campaign Count Us In are joining forces to inspire citizens and communities across Europe to take practical steps to reduce carbon pollution.

All Europeans will be able to take a ‘step’ to reduce their own carbon footprint via the Count Us In platform – from talking to friends, walking and cycling more, reducing food waste, to insulating a home to save energy.

The 16 steps have been selected with experts from the UN Environment Programme as the most effective ways for individuals to reduce carbon pollution.

Individuals, communities, businesses and organisations taking part will be able to track how much carbon they have saved, come together with their friends or colleagues to reach carbon saving targets, and challenge others to get involved.

The European Climate Pact and Count Us In has launched different language versions of the Count Us In platform, which towns, schools, communities groups and individuals across the EU can adapt and use to take steps to combat climate change. You can make a pledge in: French, German, Spanish, and Italian.

Every carbon-saving step taken by European citizens will add up to something bigger. The steps will be counted by the global Count Us In aggregator, alongside millions of others being taken around the world.
