Reducing Carbon Emissions

Reducing Carbon Emissions

Carbon ManagementWorcestershire County Council has been taking action to reduce carbon emissions from its own operations and activities for a number of years.

The Council partnered with the Carbon Trust on their Local Authority Carbon Management Programme throughout 2010/2011 to produce a new Carbon Management Plan 2011-16.

The plan will enable us to continue to reduce CO2 emissions from our Buildings, fleet transport, business mileage and street lighting, with the aim to reduce emissions by 30% over the next 5 years, from 2009/10 levels.

The plan outlines the Council's CO2 baseline data (from 2009/10) and highlights projected CO2 emissions from Council activities. It also details the carbon saving opportunities which the Council already has in place and presents further quantified opportunities that will be implemented over the lifetime of the plan.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Worcestershire County Council also reports on greenhouse gas emissions (PDF 64 KB) from the Council's buildings, operations and activities.
