Our environmental impact

We have a long-standing commitment to sustainable development and environmental excellence.

Our estate operations are built on a strong environmental ethos. Through progressive environmental strategies in our capital projects, we have embedded sustainability in the heart of our operations.

Our environmental policy

We've set out how we pursue continuous improvement of our environmental impact in our environmental policy and management plan.

Our departmental sustainability accounting policy also explains how we measure our emissions and sustainability efforts across our estates and activities.

Reporting our environmental impact

We record and report statistics on the environmental impact of our estate operations as part of our duties in meeting Greening Government Commitments (GGCs).

GGCs are the UK government’s targets to deliver sustainable operations and procurement under the current Parliament to 2015. As a non-ministerial government department, we are bound by these targets.
