A Carbon Footprint is calculated for the whole of Fife Council, as well as for each individual Service (department).
Fife Council’s Carbon Footprint in 2013/2014 was around 92,000 tonnes of carbon emissions.
92,000 tonnes is an emissions decrease of 4% since 2011/12. we’re aiming to reduce emissions by 1% every year and by 80% by 2050- improvements are being made, but we’ve still got a long way to go.
Around 70% of the Council’s Carbon Footprint is from the energy we use in buildings for heating, lighting and electrical equipment.
Service Carbon Footprint results, 2013/14
