To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, which provider supplies energy to his Department; how much CO2 was emitted through his Department’s energy consumption in the latest period for which figures are available; whether the criteria his Department uses to selecting an energy supplier includes how environmentally friendly the supplier is; and what recent steps his Department has taken to reduce CO2 emissions from its energy use.

The Department’s energy is supplied by HMRC, from whom DCMS leases office space. As such we have no direct contact or relationship with any supplier.

CO2 emissions are calculated at a building level and we are unable to accurately report on the Department’s emissions. DCMS does not have control over the building wide activities of other departments based at 100 Parliament St, or policies around building sustainability made by HMRC.
