Green reports for Whitehall

Green reports for Whitehall

All government departments will have to include sustainability reports in their bids for the next spending review, the head of the Treasury has said.

Andrew Smith, chief secretary to the Treasury, told departments they will need to consider and reflect sustainable development issues in their spending plans, the first time such requirements have been imposed.

Smith said: ‘All departments have a contribution to make to sustainable development and this should be reflected in their spending review proposals, targets and investment strategies.’

Departments will be required to submit a sustainable development report, a summary outlining how their priorities have been influenced by sustainability, and how public service agreement targets relate to the issue.
