To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Answer of 23 November 2021 to Question 75126 on UN Climate Conference 2021: Government, how many Ministers in her Department travelled to COP26 by airplane.
1 December 2021
The Secretary of State travelled to COP 26 on a commercial flight which used sustainable aviation fuel. This fuel is produced from sustainable feedstocks including waste cooking oil and other (non-palm) waste oils, and also from landfill material. It provides at least a 70% reduction in carbon emissions compared to traditional jet fuel.
Any unavoidable carbon emissions from COP26 will be offset, including those associated with travel.
