This briefing provides an overview of the Department’s sustainability and provides context for the actions it is taking to support environmental protection and sustainable development. The transport sector has a significant impact on the environment, making the activities of the Department vital in meeting environmental objectives.

The briefing is primarily focused on the environmental impact and activity of the Department, rather than economic or social sustainability.

It continues the NAO’s series of Departmental sustainability overviews prepared for the Environmental Audit Committee, which have previously covered the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, the Home Office, and the NHS.
