Government departments cut CO2 emissions by 10%
"The government estate emitted 10% less carbon dioxide in the last financial year than in 1999, according to a report published today. Environmentalists welcomed the improvement but argued that government departments had to be much more ambitious if they were to play a significant part in meeting the UK's overall carbon reduction targets.
"The Office of Government Commerce (OGC), which tracks sustainability across government buildings, said the improvements across Whitehall have come from reductions in CO2 emissions from road vehicles, less waste and consumption of water, and an increase in recycling.
"Central government departments have a target to reduce CO2 emissions from road vehicles used for administrative business by 15% by 2010-11 relative to a 2005-06 baseline."
