7. Geographic break down
The figures relate to UK emissions only, Hampshire County Council have no business interests outside of the UK.
8. Base Year
Our base year is 2009/10. The figures for this base year were collected using the NI 185 reporting criteria (the figures were then reconfigured in to the new Greenhouse Gas Emissions reporting format).
The County Council’s carbon reduction strategy aims to reduce its carbon emissions by 20% by 2015 from 2008 levels. This includes all building emissions in Scope 1, all Scope 2 and business travel from Scope 3
The Assistant Director, Culture, Community and Business Services, is responsible for the delivery of the targets set by the County Council
10. Intensity measurement
The intensity measurement is Tonnes of CO2e per m2 of the estate as this is the most appropriate way to measure the intensity for the public sector.
11. External Assurance Statement
The County Council is part of the mandatory CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme which is audited by the Environment Agency as part of its compliance responsibilities.
12. Carbon offsets
The County Council do not currently purchase carbon offsets.
13. Green tariffs
The County Council do not currently purchase green tariff electricity.
