Govt dept carbon emissions to be ranked online

Govt dept carbon emissions to be ranked online
Government departments are being called on to reduce their carbon emissions during the month of October.

All departments will be ranked on a league table which will be updated daily and will be publicly available over the internet.

Prime minster David Cameron is aiming for all central government departments to reduce their carbon emissions by ten percent in the next 12 months.

Announcing the new league table initiative, Mr Cameron said: "We have made a start but clearly we can all do much more to show leadership on this vital issue. So today is a clear challenge to Cabinet ministers and an opportunity for the public to hold us to account."

A number of departments were already said to be making strides in implementing processes which improve energy efficiency.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change is reportedly considering trailing a system which uses ceiling tiles to store heat during the day and then release it again during the evening.

Overall, the UK is looking for a 20 percent reduction in carbon emissions by the year 2020, which is in line with the European Union's target.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800093973-ADNFCR
