Total scope 3 carbon emissions from wastewater treatment
return to field list
This field contains data about scope 3 carbon emissions from wastewater treatment for the total estate. The value can be recorded to three decimal places.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
All higher education providers (HEPs).
|Unit||Tonnes of equivalent carbon dioxide (t CO2e)|
This conversion will be undertaken by HESA.
Total scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions (tonnes) from the treatment of wastewater for the whole estate (kWh).
The Defra conversion factors and guidance provide the conversion factor that will be used for the sum total of Total volume of wastewater, Total water supply grey water and rain water, and Total water borehole extraction as well as supplemental information.
AUDE and EAUC have produced a guidance document on the methodologies that providers should be using to determine how to calculate Scope 3 carbon emissions. This can be found here.
Please note that HEPs in England, Northern Ireland or Wales will need to return a value for the fields Total volume of wastewater, Total water supply grey water and rain water and Total water borehole extraction to ensure that this mandatory field is calculated correctly.
|Mandatory for||England Northern Ireland Wales|
Quality rules relating to this entity are displayed here.
|Reason required||Part of the move to mandatory reporting of scope 3 carbon emissions.|
