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.

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.
