The Department for Work and Pensions is fully committed to improving its energy efficiency in line with the Framework for Sustainable Development on the Government Estate. We are working in collaboration with our PFI Estates Partners, Land Securities Trillium, to install energy efficient equipment across the estate under our 'Spend to Save' investment scheme (including PIR lighting and water boiler controls, extra insulation and fridge/cooler controllers). We also maximise energy efficiency during the life-cycle replacement of plant and equipment. To complement this, a national awareness campaign to encourage all members of staff to play their part is ongoing, and the Department is working with the Carbon Trust under its Carbon Management Programme.
Progress against targets is reported in the DWP Sustainable Development Annual Report which was published in December 2005. A copy of this can be found on the DWP website at: http://www.dwp.gov.uk/sus-dev/2005/sus-dev05.pdf.
