EAC Inquiry into making government operations more sustainable

In summary, this short memorandum by ACE for the Environmental Audit Committee Inquiry into making government operations more sustainable finds that:

  • Government is not on track to meet its own carbon reduction and energy efficiency targets
  • Current targets are merely set as aims or goals and should be made mandatory
  • The Government should back Anne Snelgrove MP’s Public Sector Buildings (Energy Performance) Bill which makes mandatory the Government’s commitment to procure buildings in the top quartile of energy performance
  • Government has failed to introduce new requirements for the procurement of energy efficient public sector buildings pursuant to Article 5 of the Energy Services Directive
  • All targets should be extended to cover Executive Non-Departmental Public Bodies, in addition to Government Departments and Executive Agencies
