Greenhouse gas reports and reporting emissions

  • Greenhouse gas reports and reporting emissions

The Government's Department of Energy and Climate Change has requested that councils measure and report their greenhouse gas emissions from their own estate and operations by the end of July each year.

The report provides information about the emissions of a range of gases which are caused by the provision of council services.
