1. Company Name
Hampshire County Council is a Local Authority whose headquarters are based at: The Castle, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 8ZB.
2. Reporting Period
1 April 2012 – 31 March 2013.
3. Change in Emissions
Our reported emissions have increased by 5.4% this year compared to 2011/12 based on the data included in the GHG Emissions Report below. This does however represent an overall decrease of 9.5% since baseline year.
This increase is primarily due to carbon emissions attributable to space heating, although there has also been a slight increase in electricity use in buildings and streetlighting.
Please note, our emissions figures were restated for all years in September 2013 in order to account for material changes to the conversion factors provided by Defra for reporting purposes.
We have followed the Government’s Guidance on how to measure and report greenhouse gas emissions. We used the 2012 emissions factors to calculate the figures.
5. Organisational boundary
We have used the Financial Control model.
For further details, refer to the document GHG Emissions Report 2012 13 Inclusions and Exclusions.
6. Operational scopes
We have measured our scope 1, 2 and significant scope 3 emissions.

WTT = Well to Tank (these are indirect emissions assosciated with the extracting, refining and transportation of the raw fuel to the vehicle, asset or process)
In line with revised Defra guidelines, Scope 3 emissions now itemise the Well to Tank (WTT) and the Transmission and Distribution losses that we had previous included in the overall emissions figures.
See GHG Emissions and Inclusions 2012/13 40 kB report for further details.
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).
NB our emissions figures have been restated for all years in order to account for material changes to the conversion factors provided by Defra for reporting purposes.
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.
