Reducing carbon emissions

We're committed to reducing Essex’s carbon footprint and do this by:

  • adopting a corporate emissions strategy that sets out to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from our own operations
  • taking a leadership role in local and regional energy efficiency and carbon-reduction forums
  • providing support to local businesses and schools to help them reduce their emissions
  • running Community Energy seminars
  • offering the Essex Energy Switch scheme

We follow the guidance issued by the Department of Climate Change and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to calculate our greenhouse gas emissions.
