Organisation Information

Swale Borough Council is a District Council on the North Kent Coast.

Reporting Period

April 2015 to end March 2016.

Change in Emissions

Overall our reported emissions have risen by 3.7% since last year. Since the GHG baseline year emissions have fallen by a total of 24%.

Approach

We have followed the Governments guidance on how to collect and report emissions data - DEFRA "Guidance on how to measure and report your greenhouse gas emissions."

Organisational Boundary

We have included emissions from our main buildings and operations. We have not included contracted services as these are reported directly by the contractors to DECC.

Operational Scope

We have measured our scope 1, 2 and significant scope 3 emissions.

Targets

Both Climate Local Kent and Climate Local Swale have set an annual year-on-year target of a 2.6% reduction in emissions. The final figures are set out in the table below.

Base Year

For this Greenhouse Gas report we have used 2009/10 as our base year. However, we previously reported on NI185 with a baseline of 2008/09, and for our own Carbon Management Plan we had a baseline of 2007/08.
