Local Authorities have been asked by the government to measure and report on greenhouse gas emissions every year.  They requested that this information conforms to the format recommended by the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC).  The information has to be freely available to the public on Local Authority websites.

Reporting of environmental performance indicators is associated with best practice and ensures that Wirral Council demonstrates its active pursuit of environmental goals and corporate objectives.

This report differs from the mandatory CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme since it covers all greenhouse gasses, not just Carbon Dioxide (CO2).

All available Wirral Council greenhouse gas emissions reports are available through the following links:
