Committee gets mixed response to "greening Government" report

Recommendations by the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee to beef up the "greening Government" initiative have received a mixed response from the Government. 1 Green Ministers are to publish an annual report and work to a clearer agenda, and all Departments are to begin introducing environmental management systems by the end of the Parliament. But the Government has rejected recommendations that it should establish a clear policy on when Departments must carry out and publish environmental appraisals of their policies, and has also failed to set out arrangements for environmental reporting.
