…. To make our carbon reduction targets comparable, we have also used 1990 as the year to base or reduction targets on. To do this, it is necessary to estimate our emissions for 1990 as we do not have emissions data from this year1. Compared to our 2018/19 baseline, our emissions reductions targets are to reduce our carbon emissions by 50% by 2030 and achieve an 80% reduction by 2040. What…

… of the council and from across Buckinghamshire, including emission reductions from buildings, waste, transportation and purchased goods and services. Our key actions to reduce carbon emissions are to: • plant over 500,000 trees in Buckinghamshire. • generate more renewable energy and improve energy efficiency. • reduce emissions from our vehicles. • improve infrastructure for active travel…

… levels. Compared to our estimated 1990 carbon emissions, we will: • reduce our carbon emissions by at least 75% by 2030 • reduce our carbon emissions by at least 90% by 2040 • reach net zero carbon emissions no later than 2050 The UK’s national target is to reach net zero carbon emission by 2050 with an interim target of achieving a 68% reduction by 2030, based on 1990 emission levels

…. in kilowatt hours) was the same in 1990 as 2009, updating electricity emission with the emissions factor from 1990. 3 A £5 million Climate Change Fund has been established to support continued emissions reductions, including funding tree planting, energy efficiency and renewable generation projects. The actions we’ve identified to help reduce emissions cover a wide range of activities…

… sources of other emissions to air that are harmful to health (e.g. transport). The burning of fuels (such as gas, petrol or diesel) is an activity at these sources that pollutes the air. There are several areas in Buckinghamshire where levels of nitrogen dioxide are above a UK objective for this pollutant. This has resulted in special measures being introduced for these Air Quality Management Areas…
