This field contains data about the total scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions for the whole estate. The value can be recorded to three decimal places.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
All higher education providers (HEPs).
|Unit||Kilograms of equivalent carbon dioxide (kg CO2e)|
This field is mandatory for HE providers in England, Northern Ireland or Wales.
Where your organisation generates electricity from 'owned or controlled' renewable sources backed by Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs) within the UK:
This field is the sum total of the component fields:
Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions biofuels
It is expected that each of the component fields listed above (but not those for vehicle emissions) can be linked to non-residential and residential space. Providers should therefore allocate the emissions recorded in the fields above to residential or non-residential space respectively. The provider then records the allocations in the following fields: Non-residential scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions total and Residential scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions total. Vehicle emissions must not be allocated to the residential or non-residential total fields, as this ensures that the scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions from vehicles are not double counted within Total scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions.
It is therefore expected that:
This calculation is also represented in the diagram below. HESA will use this calculation in data quality checks to determine whether providers have calculated these fields correctly.
