star this property answer text <p>The Department for International Trade (DIT) is mandated to use the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Energy frameworks for the supply of gas, electricity and liquid fuels. The CCS competes the frameworks on the open market and selects the energy providers according to a set of award criteria, normally based on price and quality.</p><p>The current suppliers of each of these services are as follows:</p><ul><li>EDF (Half-Hourly electricity);</li><li>British Gas (Non Half-Hourly electricity);</li><li>Corona (gas); and</li><li>various suppliers (liquid fuels).</li></ul><p> </p><p>DIT publishes its Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in its Annual Report and Accounts. The latest published figures show 712 t/CO2e from Scope 1 (Direct) and Scope 2 (Energy indirect) emissions and this covers the 12 months to 31 December 18. In the 12 months to 31 March 2019, which is the most up to date information available from DIT’s facilities management provider, the equivalent figure is 705 t/CO2e from energy use. This data relates only to the Department’s 3 Whitehall Place and 55 Whitehall buildings and the space it occupies in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s King Charles Street building. It excludes overseas locations and buildings where the Department is a tenant, either in London or in the rest of the UK.</p><p> </p><p>The Department’s 3 Whitehall Place office has benefited from investment by previous tenants, the Department of Energy &amp; Climate Change, in energy and carbon saving plant equipment such as a dedicated small IT chiller and LED lighting. Continued reductions in emissions have been achieved through improved building management and decarbonisation of grid electricity.</p>
