Environmental Audit Committee publish report on sustainability in the Home Office, Friday 12 September 2014
This report assesses the Government’s progress in embedding sustainable development in the Home Office. It follows on from our report last year on Sustainability in BIS and previous reports on embedding sustainability across Government. Sustainability is about considering economic, social and environmental issues in a holistic way, with particular attention to long-term consequences.
The report examines the integration of sustainability in the Home Office’s policy approach, governance, and operations, including procurement. It reviews progress against the ‘Greening Government Commitments’, the role of the department’s Sustainability Champion, and its policy approach on Wildlife Crime and crime prevention.
