The information requested is not held centrally.

The Home Office is committed to reducing its carbon emissions on a trajectory to Net Zero by 2050 or sooner; and has reduced its total emissions by 55% by 2019-20 compared to 2009-10. During 2020-21 a study will be commissioned to understand how Home Office will meet the Government’s net zero by 2050 target whilst working to make the estate more sustainable including opportunities to adopt renewable energy. Site specific renewables surveys are already underway to determine the scope for using a range of renewable technologies, including solar panels and wind turbines.
