Committee on Climate Change: Buildings

Volume 495: debated on Wednesday 1 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change if he will place in the Library a copy of the (a) Display Energy Certificate and (b) advisory report for the offices of the Committee on Climate Change at Manning House, Carlisle Place. (283257)

The CCC leases the fourth floor of Manning House and does not have control over the management of the building. The building managers have not as yet applied for a display energy certificate or advisory report to be undertaken, although the CCC has requested that this is done. We are therefore unable to place a copy of these in the Library. The CCC has installed carbon footprint trackers and is monitoring energy usage for its floor of the building. It has also applied to have an energy performance certificate produced for its offices. The CCC's corporate carbon management policy will be published in its annual report and accounts for 2008-09 which will be laid before both Houses’ Libraries by 22 July 2009.
