Between 2008 and 2013, we put a carbon management plan in place to help us reduce our carbon dioxide emissions. By March 2013, we had reduced them by 23 per cent. We are now working on a new energy reduction plan to build on this success.
Greenhouse gas emissions
Since 2011 the council has measured and reported greenhouse gas emissions from its estate and operations in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, an internationally recognised method for measuring greenhouse gas emissions. A copy of the 2017/18 annual greenhouse gas emissions report is available to download here. The report shows that between 2009/10 and 2017/18 council greenhouse gas emissions fell by 28 per cent.
