Departmental Sustainable Development

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 26 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales when his Department plans to publish its sustainable operations policy statement. (195892)

My Department is currently establishing a sustainable operations policy.

We already have a robust recycling programme for paper, cans, glass, plastic, cardboard and shredding. We recycled 5,913 kg from April to September 2007. We have been successful in reducing both energy and water consumption, and 100 per cent. of our electricity is supplied from renewable sources.

As soon as the policy is in place the statement will be published on our website.
