We have, between 1999 and 2006, reduced the carbon emissions from the departmental estate by 15 per cent. The figure for 2006-07 will be published shortly in the 2007 "Sustainable Development in Government" report.


This figure reflects that published in the 2006 "Sustainable Development in Government" report. The departmental estate includes the Department's London administrative estate, and buildings occupied by NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency. Where the Department is a minor occupier in buildings also occupied by other Government Departments, this is not counted as part of the departmental estate.
