By Tara Singh & Thomas Sweetman. Green Dreams looks at the Government’s “green” targets over the last ten years highlighting a worrying high failure rate with little to show for hundreds of targets set. Examining the issue in more detail the report looks at exactly what has gone wrong over the last decade. Based on the lessons learnt the report suggests ways to ensure that targets be an effective tool of government, deployed simply and clearly to motivate change, rather than as a political tool that can hinder good governance as much as promote it.

Will local government be able to match central government’s ‘carbon neutral ICT within four years’ goal? This key question, asked in LGITU editorial back in July 2008, instigated the research programme ‘Green Veneer or Green Revolution’. When Cabinet Office minister, Tom Watson, announced the government’s aim to make energy consumption of its ICT estate carbon neutral within four years – and carbon neutral throughout its entire lifetime, including manufacture and disposal by 2020 – the British government became the first in the world to tackle the carbon footprint of its own computer systems. See this report for more information.

In 2008 European Union (EU) member states committed themselves to obtaining 10% of transport fuels from renewable sources by 2020. Member states will fill almost all of this commitment through industrial biofuels. As much as two-thirds are likely to be imported, the majority from developing countries. Biofuels are conservatively estimated to have been responsible for at least 30% of the global food price spike in 2008. If all global biofuel targets are met, it is predicted that food prices could rise by up to an additional 76% by 2020. An estimated 600 million extra people may be hungry because of industrial biofuels by this date.
