Estates Management record 2012/13
Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions biofuels
return to field list
This field contains data about scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions from biofuels. The value can be recorded to three decimal places.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
All higher education institutions (HEIs).
|Unit||Kilograms of equivalent carbon dioxide (kg CO2e)|
Total scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions from biofuels (Kg CO2 per litre) for the whole estate.
If a figure was returned under Energy consumption biofuels (kWh), higher education institutions (HEIs) will need to calculate the scope 1 and 2 emissions.
The consumption figure returned by the HEI should be broken down by the type of biofuel, the component figures multiplied by the corresponding Defra conversion factors to produce the scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions. The sum of these should then be returned in this field.
The Defra conversion factors and guidance to support HEIs in returning this field can be found in the downloadable Excel spreadsheet, under the ‘Bioenergy’ tab.
|Mandatory for||England Northern Ireland Wales|
Quality rules relating to this field are displayed here.
|Reason required||For advice to Government, monitoring progress towards sector carbon targets and for use in producing Capital Investment Framework (CIF) metrics.|
Data type: LENGTH12DECIMAL3Type
|Change management notes||Guidance amended in the Notes section, explaining that HEIs will need to calculate the scope 1 and 2 emissions as the Defra conversion factor is dependent upon the type of biofuel consumed.|
