Environmental Management

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 10 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development whether his Department (a) is committed to the achievement of environmental management to ISO 14001 standard and (b) has been externally certified as in compliance with that standard; and if he will make a statement. (81187)

DFID is strongly committed to the targets set out in the Framework for Sustainable Development on the Government Estate, and in accordance with these has established Environment Management Systems in both our UK offices in line with the standards set out in ISO 14001. We are not proposing to have the systems externally certified.
