Reducing carbon

Lincolnshire wide carbon modelling

A creation of a one-off Lincolnshire wide carbon baseline could identify areas of carbon emission reductions that would benefit from joint working.

It could include data from the county and district councils, with potentially other public bodies such as police, NHS and University of Lincoln contributing to the development.

This has approach has already worked for Waste services where a carbon footprint analysis has led to closer partnership working.

Local authority and regional carbon emissions

Data exists at district council level for per capita carbon emissions and this data goes back to 2005. The data has a two-year lag, but is useful as it breaks down emissions into domestic, commercial and transport emissions so it is possible to see changes over time.
