If you're responsible for your organisation's 10:10 effort, you know that this carbon-cutting business isn't always smooth sailing – sometimes you need a bit of extra help.
How-to guides are great, but there's no substitute for talking to someone who's actually been there – someone who knows what it's like to pitch an energy-saving idea to a sceptical boss, or put a shiny new transport policy into practice.
Each of the 12 hand-picked Pioneers has led an exceptional carbon-cutting effort within their organisation, and is ready to share their insights and expertise (free of charge, naturally) with any 10:10er that needs a helping hand.
The Pioneers are based all over the UK and have a whole range of professional backgrounds – from corporate energy and CSR managers to the heads of small local charities. Their 10:10 stories are very different, but they all know that working together and sharing ideas is the key to getting climate change sorted.
I'm excited about the Pioneers programme because it sums up what 10:10 is all about – bringing people together so we can collectively raise our game. So if there's a tricky problem that's been holding you back for a while, why not see if a 10:10 Pioneer can help you crack it?
