Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Planet Footprint have recently supplied the details for the last quarter of 2012. Council missions are made up of street lighting (44.4%, energy(40.4%), fleet fuel(14.9%) and waste (.32%). Included under energy is electricity and gas consumption in buildings as well as water and other facilities. While most areas have remained steady since 2009 street lighting has seen a minor increase and energy a fall from 2010-11 to 2011-12. Hopefully, this has resulted from Council's attempt to be more energy efficient.
