Sustainable Operations on the Government Estate targets
Sustainable Operations on the Government Estate targets consist of targets to reduce Government?s environmental impact (cutting carbon, waste, water use and procuring sustainably etc) as well as targets to maximise the positive impacts on environment and society (biodiversity, volunteering).

The aims of all of the SOGE targets are for Government to: Lead by example ? Government must demonstrate leadership in the sustainable management of its estate and use its significant buying power to achieve a low carbon, more resource efficient public sector; and to reduce environmental impact ? Government must acknowledge the environmental impact of its activities and demonstrate how it is they are reducing this impact.
