cutting down on the 2%

The Ashden Directory signed up to the 10:10 campaign yesterday and joined the 1000s of other organisations and individuals who have pledged to cut their CO2 emissions by 10% in 2010.

The Ashden Directory has never calculated its carbon footprint. It's edited by three people working part-time from their homes. The main emissions - we assume - come from the three computers we use and our heavy reliance on the internet. When we have worked out an estimate for that, along with the other aspects of the website's footprint, we will publish the figure and take steps to reduce it.

A report from Climate Group last week suggested that computers, printers, mobile phones and the widgets that accompany them account for 2% of total emissions.
