Environmental Management

Volume 448: debated on Monday 3 July 2006

To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission, whether the House of Commons (a) is committed to the achievement of environmental management to ISO 14001 standard and (b) has been externally certified as being in compliance with that standard; and if he will make a statement. (81062)

The House of Commons has not been externally certified as being in compliance with ISO 14001 standard. The House of Commons Board of Management will be considering the implications of seeking to meet ISO 14001 standard and EMAS accreditation in the autumn. The forthcoming Commission Annual Report (to be published on 12 July) will contain an environmental report.
