Ofcom has set out a target to halve its annual level of carbon dioxide emissions by 2020.
The communications watchdog said that the target forms part of its 'Footprint' project which seeks to reduce carbon emissions across the entire organisation.
Ofcom aims to reduce its emissions by 25 per cent by 2012, and will use audits to monitor its progress scheduled for 2009 and 2011.
The results will be measured against the organisation's Carbon Audit and Ecological Footprint (PDF).
"Ofcom takes its role in minimising its impact on the environment very seriously and looks forward to working with government and stakeholders to achieve the common goal of reducing our carbon emissions," said Ed Richards, chief executive of Ofcom.
Ofcom will implement a number of initiatives to reduce the power used by its information systems and buildings, minimise business travel and increasing flexible working.
It has also pledged to reduce paper consumption and encourage recycling, while putting a low-carbon procurement strategy in place.
