ABSTRACT
The article reports that the British government has reset its internal sustainability goals. The new sustainable development in government targets will supplant the existing sustainability on the government estate framework. The goal for carbon dioxide reductions have been extended beyond office emissions to incorporate all direct emissions as well as those associated with electricity use and business travel. There is also a new goal for construction waste.

    Radiocarbon dioxide (14CO2, reported in Δ14CO2) can be used to determine the fossil fuel CO2 addition to the atmosphere, since fossil fuel CO2 no longer contains any 14C. After the release of CO2 at the source, atmospheric transport causes dilution of strong local signals into the background...
