Councillor urges residents to download climate app

As world leaders prepare to discuss climate change at COP28, Dudley Council’s cabinet member for climate change is encouraging residents to play their part with the use of a new app.

The Giki Zero app enables users to calculate their carbon footprint while suggesting steps they can take to help reduce it.

It is free and easy to download to smart phones or tablets, alternatively users can have desktop accounts, simply by searching for Giki Zero. Councillor Dr Rob Clinton, cabinet member for climate change said:

“As leaders from across the globe come together for COP28, Dudley Council is continuing in its work towards being a net zero council by 2030.

“We all have a responsibility for the future health of our planet, and I would encourage all our residents to use the free Giki app in order to explore new ways of measuring and reducing their carbon footprint.

“Since downloading the app myself, I have significantly reduced the amount of meat I eat and have increased the number journeys I take by bicycle or on foot.”

Dudley Council recently launched its new webpage to help people in Dudley borough understand how the council is reducing its carbon footprint.

The page is part of the council’s #DudleyClimateAction campaign and offers useful information on the council’s climate emergency commitment. It includes details of the council’s vision for the future, with its aspiration for the borough to be net zero by 2041.
