Main question

Murad Qureshi

Could the Mayor provide an update on Action 13.2 of his 2011 Climate Change Mitigation and Energy Strategy which was to "Use a comparable methodology for measurement and reporting of CO2 emissions across the GLA group"?


Answer

The Mayor

All functional bodies (TfL, LFEPA, LLDC, MPS, GLA) report according to 'Defra's Environmental Reporting Guidelines: Including mandatory greenhouse gas emissions reporting', and use the latest version of Defra's greenhouse gas conversion factors for company reporting to calculate carbon dioxide emissions.
