The 10:10:10 celebrations received a massive boost yesterday when the city of Paris said a hearty “bonjour” to the 10:10 campaign. The pace at 10:10 HQ ahead of our Global Day Of Doing has been truly breathless – and we’re just getting started.

It’s hard to think of a better start to 10:10:10 than the Parisian mayor, Bertrand Delanoë, signing a 10:10 pledge committing the entire French capital to dramatically cut its CO2 emissions.
GreenBlogNetwork Editorial:  [OK, we know it’s from the SuperBowl but some Parisian Lovin’ is always good…View Parisian Love Below]


But how is Paris going to achieve its 10%? Well:
  • The city will renovate 4,500 housing units per year to dramatically cut emissions.
  • The “city halls” of each of the 20 arrondissements  will be given a full energy saving refurb.
  • The fleet of municipal vehicles will be optimized and streamlined.
  • Deep geothermal wells will be dug in the north-east of the city powering 12,000 homes.

But hey, don’t take my word for it. Get over to 10:10 France’s site and read all about it. Hop over to 1010global.org/101010 for full details.
