unstar this property answer text <p>The Senior Deputy Speaker has asked me, as Chairman of the Services Committee, to respond on his behalf.</p><p>House of Lords Catering and Retail Services (CRS) is taking a pro-active approach to reducing the use of disposable cups within the House’s catering facilities. The River Restaurant and Millbank House Restaurant both provide disposable cups, and in both areas CRS runs an incentive scheme for customers whereby the price of a hot beverage is reduced by 10p (broadly the price of a disposable cup) if a customer brings their own cup. We also provide china cups in the River Restaurant and Millbank House Restaurant and encourage customers to use these when they are dining in, instead of using a disposable cup.</p><p>Regarding procurement, CRS is not aware of a disposable cup for hot beverages that is fully bio-degradable, and until such a product becomes available CRS will have to continue with its current supply. CRS works closely with its suppliers to ensure it would become aware of any new appropriate products should they emerge.</p><p>Through the procurement process, CRS objectives include sourcing products that come from renewable sources (such as those supporting sustainable forestry or low carbon processes). The disposable hot beverage cups currently used are made from sustainable and recycled materials and are an insulated, double walled cup. This reduces disposable consumption by negating the need for an additional sleeve or the practice of customers doubling up cups if thinner, single walled cups are provided.</p><p>CRS has recently received accreditation from the Sustainable Restaurant Association, and looks forward to working alongside the Association to implement innovative solutions for reducing the amount of total disposable products, including cups, that are used across the House of Lords catering venues.</p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The UK is a world leader in climate change and has always been a party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) individually as well as through the EU and we are bound by all the obligations of the Paris Agreement under international law.</p><p> </p><p>The UK’s commitment to action to tackle climate change and to the UNFCCC process is not in doubt; we remain firmly committed to the Paris Agreement and to our emissions reduction and climate finance efforts under it. We have demonstrated our commitment domestically – we were the first country to introduce legally binding emissions reduction targets through the Climate Change Act, and we have recently published our highly praised Clean Growth Strategy, which is ambitious and robust in setting out how we will decarbonise the UK economy through the 2020s. The UK is also committed to phasing out unabated coal power generation by 2025, and at the recent twenty-third Conference of the Parties (COP23) the UK, joint with Canada, announced the Powering Past Coal Alliance which gained the support of more than 20 partners. Internationally, through our International Climate Finance we have committed to provide at least £5.8bn between 2016 and 2020 to developing countries, to help them mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change.</p><p> </p><p>Whatever the nature of the future UK-EU relationship, the UK will remain committed to international efforts to tackle climate change, and working closely with the EU will remain very important.</p>
