To report to the Executive the methodology and results of the carbon footprint calculation for the Council’s services.
At the 02 March 2020 Executive meeting, the Executive agreed the priorities of the Climate Change Working Group (CCWG). The first project of the CCWG was to calculate the carbon footprint of the Council’s services (Streetscene, Leisure and Community, Planning and Regeneration, etc.).
This report outlines the methodology and results of the carbon footprint calculation and covers the 2019/2020 financial year. It will be used to inform the Council’s Carbon Reduction Plan as it reveals the main sources of the Council’s carbon emissions. Calculations will be undertaken annually to ensure continuous measurement towards carbon neutrality.
The Council’s total carbon emissions for service delivery for 2019/20 is 3661.44 tCO2e (tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent).
RESOLVED that the Executive agrees that the Fareham Borough Council Services Carbon Footprint Calculation Report 2019/20 set out in Appendix A is used as the basis for the preparation of the Council’s Carbon Reduction Plan.
