Carbon Use Indicator Information (17.12.09)
This first edition is a simple model based upon the carbon dioxide emission equivalents (CO2e) for water, sewage, waste and recycled waste. The recycled waste figure in this model acts as an offset. The model has been developed with the assistance of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), the Environment Agency and other stakeholders, such as the NHS SDU and the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP). This is to ensure the model continues to improve and reflects the current conversion factors for greenhouse gases.
