Motion text

That this House notes that the Sustainable Development Commission report, Sustainable Development in Government 2007, published on 18th March, found that nearly two-thirds of government departments are not on track to meet their carbon emissions reduction targets; further notes that when the Ministry of Defence is discounted all performance improvements are negated and that carbon emissions from Civil Service estate offices have increased by 22 per cent. and energy efficiency has worsened by 3.3 per cent. on 2006 levels and that there has been only a 0.1 per cent. reduction in water use against a target of 25 per cent. by 2020; and urges the Government to lead by example in promoting sustainable business through enhancing efforts to reduce carbon pollution and the material consumption of the Government Estate.
