AMEC signs up to the 1010 carboncutting campaign


London, United Kingdom (28 January 2010) - AMEC plc, the international engineering and project management company, has joined the UK-led 10:10 carbon reduction campaign in which the company aims to achieve a 10 per cent cut in its worldwide carbon dioxide emissions by the end of 2010.

The campaign has already enrolled over 2,000 businesses, including household names such as Microsoft, Adidas and Sony, and over 50,000 individuals including well-known public figures such as Conservative leader David Cameron and actor Kevin Spacey.

Frances Allan, AMEC’s Sustainability Programme Manager said: -AMEC has set itself very demanding carbon reduction targets over the next 40 years to help tackle climate change and 10:10 is an important early step.”

-Part of our consultancy work around the world involves advising our customers in the energy and other industries how to manage their environmental impacts, and we decided we wanted to lead by example. Not only do carbon reductions make environmental sense, but they should also save us money by cutting energy bills. We are encouraging our employees and their families to join in too and hope that between us we can make progress on this global issue.-
