DCSF Headquarters (comprising our main buildings at Runcorn, Darlington, Sheffield and London) has signed up to the 10:10 campaign for cutting carbon usage. Information is not held centrally on whether the Department’s non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs) intend to sign up.
Within the Department, there is support from the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families for the 10:10 climate campaign. Trajectories for carbon savings are monitored as part of reporting DCSF progress towards meeting Sustainable Development in Government carbon reduction targets. A review of the portfolio of projects targeted at reducing carbon considered projected CO2 savings for 2010 sufficient to meet the 10:10 campaign for cutting carbon usage.
