BRITISH COUNCIL PORT OF SPAIN

Working as the Information and Resources Co-ordinator for the British Council Trinidad and Tobago, I took on the hefty task of knocking 10% off our emissions in one year. With some big changes, a couple of hiccups, and the co-operation of all those involved, we ended up with something to shout about: a 21% cut in carbon. Maybe it wasn't as hard as I first thought ...

As Scarborough council's energy manager, it's my job to reduce consumption, so if I'm successful, the council's emissions should follow suit. We've been making a concerted effort to reduce our emissions since we secured Salix funding and signed up to 10:10 in July 2010.

BRITISH EMBASSY COPENHAGEN

En samlet besparelse på CO2-forbruget på hele 27 %! Det er, hvad den britiske ambassade i Danmark opnåede sidste år. Viceambassadør Simon Wood fortæller med stolthed og entusiasme om, hvordan ambassadens ansatte gjorde det til et fælles mål at nå op på den 10 % besparelse i 2010, som oprindeligt var målet for 10:10-kampagnen. "Og då vi så var nået derop, gik der sport i det. Man kunne måske have forestillet sig, at når målet var nået, begyndte folk at slappe af. Men det var ikke tilfældet. Tværtimod fik vi mere blod på tanden. Nu gjaldt det om at komme så langt op som muligt".
