Departmental Carbon Emissions

Volume 471: debated on Tuesday 29 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps he has taken to reduce his Department’s carbon dioxide emissions in 2008-09. (181845)

The Department has devised a plan which has identified potential savings of 562 tonnes of CO2 by March 2009.

In particular, the Department plans to replace its gas boilers with ones which are more efficient. This will significantly reduce our carbon emissions. We are seeking advice from the Carbon Trust on this.
