Our carbon audit

About our level of greenhouse gas emissions, and view our current 2020/21 audit

Our carbon audit report

Our carbon audits cover the financial year and are reported on a yearly basis. We use Official Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) greenhouse gas reporting conversion factors to calculate our emissions.

Here at the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk:

  • The base year for our audit is 2009/2010. This is the earliest data that we have available to us. Our emissions have reduced by 61% from our base year.
  • We started an annual carbon audit programme in 2018/2019. Previous greenhouse gas emissions were reported until 2014/2015, in line with earlier guidance.
  • We emitted 2,824.5 tonnes of CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) in the 2019/2020 financial year. This is a 5.8% reduction from our 2020/2021 audit.
