Greenhouse Gas Emissions Annual Report

The Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has requested that each local authority publishes its own greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and report locally on its own website.  Figures are calculated using guidance from Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). This approach to GHG reporting supports the localism agenda by ensuring local authorities are accountable to the local population for greenhouse gas emissions emitted by that authority.

Stevenage Borough Council is required to identify activities in the organisation which are responsible for GHG emissions being released into the atmosphere. There is an obligation to make this information publicly available on the council website. The annual report sets out carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions and provides year on year comparisons.
