John & Tegwen Burns at Westminster

John & Tegwen Burns at Westminster
03/07/2007

John and Tegwen Burns, directors of Burns Pet Nutrition in Kidwelly in West Wales recently attended a parliamentary reception at the House of Commons hosted by Colin Challen MP (Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Climate Change Group). They were guests of the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) which is sponsored by Burns Pet Nutrition.

CAT was presenting "zerocarbonbritain - an alternative energy strategy" a programme designed to help Britain meet the challenge of climate change. The twenty year strategy sets out how Britain can move from a reliance on fossil fuels to a system based entirely on completely renewable power generation. The proposals include all aspects of our lives including homes, industry, travel, and building. The country received a timely reminder of the need to tackle global warming in the shape of the floods which devastated much of the country in recent weeks. The Government has a stated aim of sourcing from renewable sources but at the present rate targets are unlikely to be achieved. Britain currently produces about 4% of its energy needs from renewables compared to 12% in Germany.

During the visit Mr and Mrs Burns met Nia Griffiths MP who is PPS (Parliamentary Private Secretary) to Phil Woolas MP Minister of State in Defra (Department of the Environment and Rural Affairs).

Burns Pet Nutrition as a company is dedicated to sustainable living. The company recently achieved the Green Dragon Environmental Standard Level 2 for its achievements in reducing its environmental impact.
