Greenhouse Gas emissions from local authority owned estate and operations
On 9 March 2011, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Local Government Group that recognised the pivotal role that local councils have in tackling climate change.
To support the principles of the MOU, local Councils measure and report their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from their own estate and operations annually.
This report details GHG emissions data from 1 April 2008 to 31 March 2014. We are pleased to report a 21.06% decrease in comparison to the baseline year of 2008 in CO2 emissions from NHDC estate and operations, and a 10.54% decrease compared to last year.
