From 2011 the Council publishes its annual greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) using the standard GHG guidance from DEFRA in partnership with the Department of Energy and Climate Change.

The guidance is aimed at all sizes of business as well as public and third sector organisations and explains how organisations can measure and report their GHG emissions as well as set targets to reduce them.

Existing data sources such as utility bills, fuel consumption and car mileage can be converted into CO2 equivalent emissions by applying relevant conversion factors.

The guidance document and GHG emission factors used to calculate the emissions can be found by following this link:
