Carbon reduction plan

Show all parts of this guide

1. Introduction

The purpose of the Carbon Reduction Plan is to set out the core measures required to drive forward and deliver a broad range of actions across all Council services to deliver Net Zero by 2030. The Carbon Reduction Plan is supported by the 2020/21 Corporate Carbon Footprint report produced by the Centre for Energy and the Environment at the University of Exeter, and links to the Net Zero Risk Register. The Carbon Reduction Plan is a living active document to be reviewed every 6 months to update on progress made, as well as legislative, financial, technical and operational changes.

The 8 sectors in the Carbon Reduction Plan assessed are:

  • non-domestic buildings
  • Council-owned housing
  • Transport, procurement
  • F gases and waste
  • Renewable energy
  • Land use change
  • Land overall organisational change.

Achieving net zero, whether nationally, locally or organisationally, requires broad action across all emission scopes and across every service.
