Greenock Morton Community Trust who run the CCF funded Greener Morton project in Inverclyde have joined other community groups across Scotland who have signed the Climate Change Pledge.
The Pledge links grass-roots, community activities into the bigger picture – contributing towards Scotland’s ambitious targets to cut greenhouse gasses and developing our collective resilience for the future.
Greener Morton Project Manager, Karen Welsh is pictured with Trustees (L to R) Stuart Rae, Crawford Rae (Chairman), Nick Robinson and Chris McCorkindale. They are all committed to play a vital role in the Inverclyde community in tackling climate change by reducing their carbon footprint and environmental impact.
Karen said, ” We are delighted to sign the pledge and felt it was important to do so near the beginning of our project. Over the next ten months we will be supporting the football club and community by demonstrating what steps can be taken by everyone as we help to reduce the Inverclyde carbon footprint. The pledge is for organisations, not individuals, but we urge everyone to have a read and then take the pledge.”
The Greener Morton Project is taking shape around Cappielow and Karen added, “it’s an exciting time while the refurbishment of our new drying facility is taking shape. We are also working on our Kit & Boot Recycling Facility which we hope to have open within the next two weeks.”
Information about this facility and other strands to the project will be available on our website soon.
The Greener Morton team are looking forward to attending the Climate Challenge Fund Gathering on the 22nd of June in Glasgow. Information about other projects in Scotland can be found at www.climatechallengefund.org
