Carbon Trust Standard

Logo for the Carbon Trust Standard

Telford & Wrekin Council has been awarded the Carbon Trust Standard recognising our drive to measure, manage and reduce our carbon emissions over the past three years. Over this period, the council has reduced its carbon footprint by 4.1 per cent relative to growth.

This covers the emissions from our 75 schools and 120 operational buildings as well as those from council transport and from street furniture such as street lights and traffic lights.

To acheive this, a number of projects and schemes have been implemented within schools, libraries, leisure centres and other venues across the Borough.

These have included the closure of 11 non-educational buildings with the services they housed into other properties, the installation of 15 biomass boilers at eight sites and energy audits at 24 buildings.

The council has also adopted a sustainable procurement policy, introduced heating and lighting improvements at different offices and trialled biodiesel on its fleet vehicles.

Telford and Wrekin has seen an extensive programme of street light improvements across the borough and switching off of street lighting on the A442 during the night.

The Carbon Trust Standard is the world’s first award that recognises organisations for real carbon reductions. It was launched to encourage good practice in carbon measurement, management and reduction by both businesses and public sector organisations.
