The Club is a founding participant of a new environmental campaign called 10:10 and in doing so has joined thousands of individuals and organisations from across the country committed to making a 10% cut in carbon emissions during 2010.
Club chairman Daniel Levy commented on the importance of taking action now against climate change. "It is no exaggeration to say that climate change is without doubt the greatest challenge facing us all in the 21st Century. As a Club with millions of supporters and two major developments planned - a new training centre and a new stadium - it is vital that we recognise this and play our part."
The success of 10:10 depends on getting as many people as possible behind the initiative and we'd like to invite every fan to sign up and be part of the challenge. 10:10 is a straightforward idea - we all work together to achieve a cut in the UK's carbon emissions in 2010.
Reducing your carbon footprint isn't as hard as you'd think. It's all about making small lifestyle changes and being more conscious about the energy you use - such as making sure you turn off electrical items at night or using public transport to get to matches.
Remember 10:10 is about getting involved and doing what you can, every percent counts and any cut in emissions will be a success story!
Climate change is a huge problem, but by uniting large numbers of people and institutions around immediate, effective and achievable action, 10:10 enables us all to make a difference.
