10:10 vision: making a carbon commitment

Last week I was pleased to see that public and third sector organisations making the 10:10 pledge i.e. committing to cut carbon emissions by 10% in 2010. There are ten universities as well as dozens of schools.

While some carbon-reducing measures will have cashflow and budget implications which may preclude speedy implementation at the current time, other measures may save money as well as the planet.

I am actively seeking to reduce my business mileage which is significant albeit driving a low carbon car. Making the 10:10 is consistent with that. I will sign up although I am no sure whether I do that personally or as Deed Consulting.
