Climate Week Best Campaign 2012

John Hemming MP

MP (Lib Dem Birmingham Yardley)

"As Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Peak Oil and Gas I am only too well aware of the dangers of our addiction to fossil fuels. I am delighted to support Birmingham Close the Door's campaign to reduce the energy consumption of our shops, which currently account for 46% of the city's CO2 emissions. We must all play a part in reducing our carbon footprint, getting our retailers to keep their doors closed in winter is a simple yet effective way to do this."
