… by the end of the Plan period. The Council then devised a new Carbon Management Plan with a carbon reduction target of 12% by end 2016/17 using a baseline of 2011/12. The plan sought to reduce carbon emissions from the following sources: • Energy use in buildings • Energy use for street lighting • Fuel use for fleet transport • Business travel miles • Water use in buildings • Municipal waste…

… was written setting a new target of 12% by 2016/17 from a 2011/12 baseline. The revised Plan incorporated emissions from energy use in buildings and street lighting, fleet transport and staff business travel, municipal waste and water use. Furthermore, a ‘carbon group’ was formed made up of Council staff whose work influences emissions from these sources. The group has been retained for the Climate…

transport difficult.

This is particularly relevant to Inverclyde due to its location and topography. Flooding can have severe negative impacts on buildings and infrastructure. • Increases in extreme weather events such as storms and heatwaves could impact on energy, transport, water…

… a target to have only 5% of all waste sent to landfill by 2025. Energy is often regarded as the ‘golden thread’ with respect to climate change mitigation. The Scottish Government released its proposed Energy Strategy that takes a whole system view, integrating power, heat and transport. The Energy Strategy states an objective that 50% of heat, electricity and transport consumption to be supplied from…
