The Department is committed to reducing our carbon emissions and energy consumption wherever possible and in 2018 carried out an audit of its headquarters building (1 Victoria Street, London) to identify energy conservation measures.

The spend on energy conservation measures in 2019/20 was £1,817,037.48 which includes projects such as lighting upgrades to LEDs, installation of energy monitoring software, and replacement of building services plant.

Figures are not available for previous years as expenditure was captured against different headings.
