Homes and Businesses urged to cut their carbon emissions by 10%

A new initiative by the people behind The Age of Stupid has been launched last week with the aim of getting as many homes, schools, universities, business and everything in-between to sign up and commit to reducing their carbon emissions by 10% in 2010 (hence the 10:10). Four of the ‘big 6’ of major UK energy companies have signed up (Centria, EDF, E.ON and Scottish and Southern – see the Scottish Hydro 10:10 project page here) already, and are pledging to introduce measures to assist homes and businesses meet this target in 2010, including energy use tracking equipment.

It’s not only large companies who are signing up though, a whole host of other organisations have already pledged their support, whilst individual members of the public can enroll themselves.

You can find out more information of the project on the 10:10 website.
