Essex County Council Scope 3 Carbon Emissions Baseline Final report, 2022

Essex County Council has a Net Zero ambition to achieve Net Zero across its core estate operations by 2030. As part of this ambition, Essex County Council (ECC) has already calculated a scope 1, 2 and selected scope 3 carbon footprint. ECC now requires a carbon footprint study to assess emissions sources further outside of the Council’s direct operational control, i.e. extended scope 3 emissions. In this report, the results of the scope 3 footprint calculation are presented for the following emissions categories: Purchased Goods and Services, Capital Goods, Investments, Leased Buildings and Commuting; alongside ECC’s own calculation for scope 1 and 2 emissions for direct gas and electricity consumption.
