National Trust commits to low carbon target

National Trust commits to low carbon target
A major national organisation has pledged to cut its fossil fuel use in half within ten years, through a mix of power-generating schemes and energy-saving measures.

The National Trust announced yesterday (February 10th) that its target of a 45 percent reduction would beat the government's goal of a 34 percent cut by 2020.

All the properties owned by the trust, which include over 300 historic buildings, houses and visitor centres, will be included in the initiative, through a mix of small-scale and micro energy-generating schemes.

Currently, the trust already has over 140 renewable energy projects in place across its sites in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, the revenues of which are used to fund more green ventures.

According to the organisation, its total savings of energy within the ten years will be the equivalent to removing 4,500 family cars from the road.

In addition to this, the commitment is expected to substantially reduce the trust's current annual heating and energy bill of £6 million.
