10:10 Campaign - History

This year, thousands of individuals and organisations from across the country are working together for a common goal.  The idea is simple: we aim to achieve a 10% cut in the UK’s carbon emissions in 2010.

Cutting 10% in one year is a bold target, but for most of us it’s an achievable one, and is in line with what scientists say we need right now. And by signing up to a 10% target we’re not just supporting 10:10 - we’re making it happen.

It’s easy to feel powerless in the face of a huge problem like climate change, but by uniting large numbers of people and institutions around immediate, effective and achievable action, 10:10 enables all of us to make a meaningful difference. It’s the perfect opportunity to find out what’s possible when we work together.

In the health sector in particular there are lots of good reasons why we should join 10:10 including:

  • The high and rising cost of energy;
  • The threat to health from climate change; and
  • The health benefits of a low carbon active lifestyle.

The Campaign was launched at Tate Modern on 1st September, where 10 NHS organisations (from a GP surgery to an SHA) were among the first sign-ups.  You can see a blog post about the launch here, and find the Summary Briefing Document here.
