Hampshire County Council is a Local Authority whose headquarters are based at: The Castle, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 8ZB.
1 April 2009 – 31 March 2010
This is the baseline year so data has not been collected in this format previously hence cannot be compared to previous years.
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 have used the Financial Control model.
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 Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inclusions and Exclusions 28kb report for further details.
The figures relate to UK emissions only, Hampshire County Council have no business interests outside of the UK.
Our base year is 2009/10. The figures for this base year were collected using the NI 185 reporting criteria (the figures have been reconfigured in to this new Greenhouse Gas Emissions reporting format).
NB our emissions figures have been restated in order to account for material changes to the conversion factors provided by Defra for reporting purposes.
