PATT joins Tesco to help mark Climate Week 2011: partnership link helps shoppers learn more about climate change

 
PATT Foundation UK has supported a national week aimed at combating climate change.

As part of Climate Week 2011, everyone was encouraged to do their bit to help protect the planet – and raise awareness of the many steps being taken by communities and companies across Great Britain.

Thousands of businesses, charities, schools and councils ran events to show what could be achieved, helping share ideas, as well as encourage others to act now. It is hoped practical examples – from the small improvements and the big innovations – will help inspire others.

To mark the occasion, PATT joined with staff at Tesco in Hull to help raise awareness of both climate change and the work of the Foundation. A spokesman for PATT said it had been great to link up with Tesco to promote how local people can impact on global concerns in partnership.

“It was very successful – and we hope to work together next year,” he said.

“We would like to thank Tesco and their staff for their warm welcome – and their efforts in helping us organise the event, linking in with other PATT supporters in Hull.

“It was great working with a company that is keen to share its work and continuously build on its green credentials.

“As part of the event residents and children were also told about the work of PATT and how they could make a difference.”

David North, Tesco Community and Government Director, said, “Business has a critical job to do mobilising customers, suppliers and employees to cut energy use, cut carbon and ensure future growth is sustainable growth.

“At Tesco we’ve set ourselves a big target to become a zero-carbon business by 2050.

“We can only bring about that lasting change by working with others. We’re delighted to join forces with Climate Week to inspire, to inform and to lead a revolution in green consumption.”

Climate Week (which ran from 21 March to 27 March 2011) was supported and endorsed by Prime Minister David Cameron, former UN Director General Kofi Annan, and former US Vice President Al Gore.
