YUSU are to promote awareness of the nationwide 10:10 initiative after the University has still not agreed to sign up to cut 10% of their carbon emissions during 2010. The 10:10 campaign aims to reduce carbon emissions nationwide. The University spends over £3 million a year on energy, producing over 20,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide. If the University were to join 10:10, they would be improving our impact on the environment and the money saved on energy could then be put towards student services and degrees. YUSU President, Tim Ngwena, met with Brian Cantor last term to discuss the initiative.
