Carillion golfers warned on global warming


CONTRACTOR CARILLION fears overweight golfers could be harming the environment and costing it millions of pounds in extra company car fuel.

It is urging overweight staff to start the New Year by going on a diet to reduce the amount of fuel their cars use. It also wants those with heavy golf clubs to leave them at home so they can save on petrol.

The company has produced a 10 point plan to cut company car emissions by 25% - saving over £1M in fuel and maintenance costs.

'Many people will be thinking of starting a diet for the New Year, certainly if this office is anything to go by, ' revealed a Carillion spokesman this week.

And Carillion's army of golfing fanatics unwittingly contribute to global warming, rising sea levels, extreme weather and destruction of the planet by leaving their clubs in the boot, it is claimed.
