Figures for the department's overall carbon emissions are published annually in the Cabinet Office's Annual Report & Accounts. Carbon emissions from the Cabinet Office estate are as follows:

2015 - 5,950.34 Tonnes of CO2e

2016 - 5,092.77 Tonnes of CO2e

2017 (Jan-Mar) - 1425.5 Tonnes of CO2e

Total CO2e emissions = 12468.61

The Cabinet Office is fully committed to meeting the Government's Greening Government Commitments (GGC). The GGC departmental commitment is to reduce carbon emissions from a 2009/10 baseline by 35% by 2020; to date the department has achieved a reduction of over 50% in its overall emissions reductions.
