Departmental Carbon Emissions

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether (a) his Department and (b) each of its agencies plans to sign up to the 10:10 campaign to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 10 per cent. in 2010. (311464)

The MOD is committed to reducing its carbon dioxide emissions, and has already met the Government target to reduce emissions from its estate by 12.5 per cent. by 2010-11 relative to the 1999-2000 baseline. There is a programme of work to further reduce our emissions across the entire Defence Estate.

Noting the work already under way in MOD the Secretary of State wrote to staff in October 2009 encouraging them to join 10:10.
