East Midlands praised for climate change commitment

The East Midlands drew particular praise from Ministers today (14th June 2007) for being the first English region in which all local councils have signed a voluntary pledge to tackle climate change - a year ahead of schedule.
Climate Change and Environment Minister Ian Pearson congratulated the East Midlands on its groundbreaking achievement on the Nottingham Declaration, and welcomed moves to extend the effort to other organisations, such as Primary Care Trusts and universities.

"Being the first region in England to have every one of its local authorities signed up to the Nottingham Declaration is something about which the East Midlands can be justifiably proud," he said.

"I'm delighted to hear that they are now rolling out the declaration to other areas in the public and private sectors, and I wish them every success in their efforts on this."
