The latest Greenhouse Gas Report (2018/19) shows that Herefordshire Council has delivered a 43% reduction in CO2 emissions.
“Herefordshire Council is committed to leading a local reduction in carbon emissions. As a Local Authority, delivering a wide variety of services across the county, our carbon emissions come from many sources including running council buildings, contractor fleets, street lighting, staff travel at work and schools' gas and electricity. This presents many opportunities to deliver reductions in our carbon emissions.“Projects such as the solar PV at the HARC and LED street lighting are great examples of projects that both deliver environmental benefits and help to reduce the council’s running costs. I am delighted to see such excellent progress to date and look forward to addressing the significant but exciting challenges posed by our latest aspirational target of being carbon neutral by 2030.”
