Branson launches civic carbon challenge in Vancouver

Posted by Trish Riley, February 21, 2010

Richard Branson’s Carbon War Room ramped up its climate change battle Wednesday in Vancouver with a call to civic governments to become global leaders in cutting fossil fuel emissions.

The War Room is looking for 10 cities to participate in a 30-month pilot program intended to provide both government and private sector the financial means to aggressively improve energy efficiency projects.

…cities that seek to participate will have to meet a number of conditions: those include commitment to funding targets, establishing a dedicated team within government to focus on the challenge, and assembling a network of administrative and funding partners.
