Departmental Carbon Emissions

Volume 490: debated on Monday 30 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales whether his Department has adopted the Carbon Trust's Carbon Management Programme. (266734)

My Department has not adopted the Carbon Trust's Carbon Management Programme.

As a small Department we have taken full advantage of the Carbon Trust's small and medium sized Business Toolkit. This resulted in a full Carbon Trust survey and follow-up action plan in 2006. All action points raised have been implemented together with the introduction of a robust recycling programme.

The Wales Office is currently establishing a sustainable development strategy to further assist in further reducing emissions.
