Expenses claimed by Chairman, Committee members, Chief
Executive and Directors
The government has set out the need for
greater transparency across its operations to enable the public to
hold public bodies and politicians to account. This includes
commitments relating to public expenditure, intended to help
achieve better value for money.
Members of the Joint Nature Conservation
Committee staff are reimbursed for the costs they incur when
travelling on the behalf of the organisation’s business, including
training courses. The costs covered include accommodation,
subsistence (including meals and refreshments) and travel.
We recognise that many of our people need to
travel as part of everyday business to ensure that our corporate
plan targets are delivered. We use the most appropriate method of
travel which takes into consideration sustainability, convenience
and efficiency and the cost to the organisation.
We promote a greener working environment in
the office and we have sustainable travel policies, including
minimising the number of flights taken on behalf of the
organisation, to ensure that we are actively pursuing reductions in
the carbon emissions.
