Baroness Parminter – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Baroness Parminter on 2015-10-19.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether the 2014–15 Greening Government Commitments report is in preparation; and whether that document will report on the commitments set out in the 2012 Natural Environment White Paper.

Lord Gardiner of Kimble

The 2014-15 Annual Report on Government’s progress on the Greening Government Commitments is in preparation and expected to be published later this year.

The Greening Government Commitments to take action on sustainable procurement and to report transparently on actions to address biodiversity and reducing the environmental impacts of food and catering services are aligned with the 2011 Natural Environment White Paper commitments. Reporting on both of these issues is therefore routinely incorporated in each year’s Greening Government Commitment report, including the upcoming 2014/15 report.
