Medical organisations sign up to 10:10

Medical organisations sign up to 10:10
A number of medical organisations have highlighted the risks climate change could have on health by signing up to the 10:10 campaign.

The Royal College of General Practitioners, the Royal College of Nursing, the Royal College of Psychiatrists and Great Ormond Street hospital have all signed the pledge to reduce their carbon emissions by ten percent this year, the Guardian reports.

Eugenie Harvey, 10:10 UK campaign director, told the news provider that the energy efficiency measures implemented after the signing of the pledge will both reduce emissions and cut costs for the organisation.

The bodies have all "committed to reducing their emissions, having all acknowledged the significant threat to human health posed by climate change", she added.

Individuals, organisations and companies are all eligible to sign up to 10:10. To date, 100,814 people, including film star Colin Firth and designer Vivienne Westwood, have joined the effort.

The National Union of Students, the Womens' Institute and some 155 local councils have also signed the pledge.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800121027-ADNFCR
