UK Govt commit to 10:10

This just came through from the wonderful team at 10:10

Dear 10:10ers,

Watch the video of Cameron's announcement on 10:10.

It’s been an amazing few days: on Wednesday, we were thrilled when the Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition announced a commitment to reduce the entire carbon footprint of central government by 10% in a year. The pledge confirmed that both parties’ earlier manifesto pledges to do 10:10 had made it through the thorny negotiation process.

Then, yesterday evening, just as we were hosting one of our fortnightly 10:10 seminars, the phone rang. It was 10 Downing Street, inviting us down to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) this morning to meet prime minister David Cameron, along with the new secretary for energy and climate change, Chris Huhne.

The government’s 10% announcement – equivalent to taking 200,000 cars off the road – is a monumental victory for 10:10 and testament to how far the campaign has come in the eight short months since its launch. Read more here.

Best of all, when we interviewed him, Chris Huhne agreed to come to 10:10 HQ to give a seminar and discuss our plans – which include everything from a fridge scrappage scheme to turning off the lights overnight in some of the country's biggest landmark buildings, as well as the biggest ever day of climate change action on 10/10/10.
