Report ES12123


The Executive received annual reports on the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) scheme, which was a significant corporate financial liability; the report set out activity during 2011/12 including the purchase of carbon allowances to cover 2011/12’s emissions.  The Leader confirmed that the Council had pressed for academies to become responsible for the financial liabilities relating to their own carbon emissions, and the Director of Environmental Services agreed to pursue this again.




(1) The need for sustained action to continue to improve data quality and reduce energy use and carbon emissions in order to reduce the Council’s financial liabilities under the CRC scheme be endorsed.


(2) A further annual report be received next year setting out scheme compliance, emissions and allowance costs for 2012/13 together with a four year forecast of the Council’s financial liabilities.
