National museums and Marriott Hotels are dominating the list of the organisations signed up to the 100 Hours of Carbon Clean up Campaign, leading the way in reducing the amount of carbon emitted from their buildings.
The Natural History Museum, Tate Galleries and the Science Museum are all taking part in the annual carbon reduction campaign being run by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), while a growing number of Marriott Hotels including London, Leicester and Bristol branches are also signing up.
Other organisations dedicating their time to energy saving activities over the coming weeks are BBC Wales, Transport for London, EDF Energy, London Fire Brigade and the Maritime & Coastguard Agency. Industry representatives include CABE, Arup, BDP and HLM Architects, while a number of Government Departments such as the Prime Ministers Office and Communities and Local Government have also shown their support.
This is the fourth Carbon Clean up Campaign run by CIBSE – last year’s campaign saw around 600 organisations sign up to cut carbon, including hospitals, museums, consultancies, local authorities and universities. The campaign is open to companies from all sectors who want to reduce the amount of carbon emitted from their buildings and to motivate fellow employees to get involved. In return, participants will be able to access an extensive list of carbon saving activities and expert advice.
