Climate Change and Air Quality Strategy

It details over 60 actions to address climate change and poor air quality regarding council operations, our work and contracts with partners and suppliers, and how we influence activity county-wide.
Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) publish national statistics on UK local authority and regional carbon dioxide emissions, including per Capita Emissions in tonnes. This data reflects ‘territorial emissions’ (emissions which are generated in the UK), which is the basis for how the UK reports on emissions internationally. BEIS data also provides sectoral breakdown such as whether the emissions are based on transport or industry.
Broadband provides access to internet services such as videoconferencing for work, tele-healthcare, access to job or property advertisements, and e-commerce. It is fast becoming an essential utility alongside water, gas and electric in UK homes. From March 2018, the Government set a legal minimum service obligation (LSO) of 10 megabytes per second (Mbps). Ofcom research shows that 10 Mbps is the minimum speed currently needed to meet an average household’s digital needs. It should be fast enough for multiple people in a household to be online at once.
Recycling Rate data is the percentage of household waste sent for reuse, recycling or composting. It is derived from WasteDataFlow (web-based-system for municipal waste reporting by UK local authorities to Government). The WasteDataFlow system went live on 30 April 2004.
Air quality can be assessed by the concentration of various pollutants in the air. The air quality indicator is compiled from four key air pollutants: Nitrogen dioxide, Benzene, Sulphur dioxide, and Particulates.
