24% and counting

CCW, the Countryside Council for Wales, have just joined the 1000+ organisations worldwide who have committed to support the 10:10 campaign. Signing up to a ten percent CO2 reduction in 2010 is only part of the story though, as it's a step that we were already on the way with our existing commitment to reduce emissions by 24%, by 2012.

Here's the text of the press release:

THE Countryside Council for Wales has signed up to the 10:10 challenge being promoted by The Guardian - to reduce carbon emissions by 10 per cent in 2010.
Already one of the greenest organisations in Wales, CCW is also encouraging other organisations to step up to the mark in the run up to the Copenhagen climate conference in December.
The10:10 initiative aims to unite every sector of British society behind one simple idea – that by working together we can achieve a 10% cut in the UK’s carbon emissions by 2010. The 10:10 campaign is both achievable and meaningful.
John Lloyd Jones, CCW Chairman said: “At our Council meeting in Aberystwyth yesterday, we agreed that reaching a 10 per cent cut in carbon emissions by 2010 would be a significant step towards our even more ambitious target of reducing emissions by 24% by 2012.
“As a national leader in measuring and tackling public sector greenhouse gas emissions, both these targets reflect the pace at which changes are needed to avoid the more damaging climate change scenarios.”
