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"?


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.
