Sustainable management of the UK Government Estate
The UK government owns and occupies a very extensive and diverse property estate for the purposes of delivering its business of governing the country.
An overview of the rationale and methods by which the government manages its estate is given, with particular reference to its objective to manage its resources in a sustainable manner. Policies and practices are considered generally along with specific government initiatives, where appropriate, and case studies that illustrate best practice.
