In our 25 Year Environment Plan, the Government outlined a range of measures on how we will reduce the amount of plastic in circulation through reducing demand for single-use plastic. This included a commitment to removing all consumer single use plastics from the central government estate offices.

At our London headquarters, we have already replaced all single-use plastic coffee cups, food containers and cutlery from our catering services, with compostable alternatives.
