Ireland joins 10:10 scheme

A campaign to get British individuals, businesses and other organisations signed up to cut their emissions by 10% by next year has launched in Ireland.

The 10:10 commitment was launched in September this year.

Irish minister for environment, heritage and local government, John Gormley, launched the new website today (October 29).

Part of it also sees the Irish Government pledge to support the efforts of Government to seal the deal in Copenhagen, and encourages the public to reduce their carbon emissions by 10% in 2010.

Mr Gormley said: “We need to reduce the amount of carbon emissions being produced, nationally and globally, in order to reduce our impact on climate change and the Irish Government is committed to doing everything it can to agree a new deal in Copenhagen to tackle carbon emissions.”
