Waitaki Sets Base Level for Emissions

In the red in a good way: a Waitaki District Council commissioned Greenhouse Gas emissions report for 2018/19 shows the organisation at significantly negative net emissions, with the organisation removing more greenhouse gases than it emits.

The first report of what may be biannual reporting commissioned by the Waitaki District Council to inventory its own greenhouse gas emissions as an organisation was released today. 

Waitaki District Council’s gross emissions were 2,876 tonnes and removals -4,902 tonnes, resulting in net emissions of -2,026 tonnes. This means that the Council is making a positive contribution overall towards mitigating climate change and by doing so acting on one of Council’s strategic priorities, to recognise and provide for the implications of climate change.
