Govtoday’s Greening Government 2012 Conference and Exhibition: Mainstreaming sustainable development, one year on is its fourth annual national conference examining the progress, by central government in particular, in achieving sustainable development. The conference will explore progress since the Government’s publication of Mainstreaming Sustainable Development in February 2011, which set out ambitious plans to build a stronger greener government, embedding sustainability as a core strategic priority, rather than an independent issue.
