carbon emission reduction actions. Sequestration Work is required over the coming year to understand the current carbon sequestration benefit offered by the existing trees and habitats in Hull and therefore understand the requirements to ensure that these are maintained in a carbon sequestration and biodiversity enrichment way. Analysis for the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP…

Based on figures for a wild cherry tree 23-V14-FINAL Becoming Carbon Neutral by 2030 The Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has argued that from 2020, keeping within a global carbon

budget of 344,000,000kt of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions would provide the world with a 66% chance of limiting average warming to 1.5 degrees and therefore avoiding dangerous levels of climate change. Dividing the global figure up on an equal basis by population, will give Hull a total carbon budget of 10,400kt from 2020 for the period through to 2050 and then for emissions to be zero…

… hereafter. Therefore, using the national 2050 net zero target date, which is the date that current Government policy and funding is focused upon achieving, at current rates of carbon emissions, Hull would use up its 10,400kt budget in just over 9 years. However, Hull could stay within this carbon budget by reducing emissions by 7.7% year on year to become carbon neutral by 2050. This would mean…

… of carbon “available” to a place that can be emitted to ensure it makes its proportionate contribution to national carbon emissions. The Climate Change Act established the use of carbon budgets as the primary method of calculating cumulative carbon emissions that affect the climate rather than a target linked to a specific date which could lead to larger amounts of carbon being emitted over…
