The Council's carbon emissions

Everything we do has an effect on the environment we live in; from burning fossil fuels for heating to collecting kerbside waste and recycling.



Behavioural change is a large part of climate action and the success of both the Council’s and the wider nation’s climate ambitions hangs on all of our actions.

Solar Panels


Council owned buildings produce a quantity of carbon emissions because of the use of energy which burns fossil fuels.

Land use

The Council can utilise its land to support its carbon aims. We can do this through investment in renewable energy, and planting schemes to support carbon absorption and improvement and maintenance of our biodiversity.



Current estimates by Welsh Government show that 60% - 81% of public sector organisations’ operating budgets are spent with suppliers and contractors.

Energy Green

Reducing the county's carbon emissions

There are a number of actions that can be taken by the Council to reduce GHG emissions from the wider county.

Climate Behaviour

Reducing your carbon emissions

We all produce carbon emissions in our day to day lives from heating our homes to driving to work. The first step to knowing how to reduce our emissions, is by understanding where our emissions are coming from.


Climate Toolkits

These toolkits have been created to support Schools and Town & Community Councils to measure and understand their carbon emissions, determine a means to reduce those emissions and engage with others to support and influence action.
