The Department for Education (DfE) is committed to delivering a sustainable government estate and reducing its carbon footprint.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) was funded by DfE as the sponsor department for the period of 2015 to 2016 and for the period of 2017 to 2018. The EHRC’s spending on electricity and natural gas is not readily available and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.

The information requested for DfE, Ofqual and Ofsted is in the attached table in Annex A. The figure for DfE includes all of its agencies and non-departmental bodies and has been adjusted to exclude Ofsted. We are unable to report data from locations where landlords do not provide data.
