Three tier criteria
Combined authority must meet the minimum criteria of question 3a to be able to get points for this question.

Criteria met if, using the combined authority's own reporting mechanisms, there has been a 5% or more reduction of scope 1 and 2 emissions when comparing 2019 to 2021 (or financial years 2018/19 to 2021/22) data.

Additional points awarded if this emission reduction has been 10% or more, or further points if the reduction has been 20% or more.

Further points awarded if there has been any reduction from scope 3 emissions.

We recognise that there is currently no standard way that all combined authorities use to report on emissions. We will score combined authorities own calculations, despite the differences, as long as they fulfill the requirements in 3a.


Scope 1 emissions are greenhouse gas emissions that an organisation owns or controls directly, such as fuel burnt from their vehicles.

Scope 2 emissions are greenhouse gas emissions that an organisation produces indirectly when they purchase and use energy, such as the emissions created from the electricity the combined authority buys to heat its offices.

Scope 3 emissions are greenhouse gas emissions that are created indirectly in an organisations' supply chain, such as the emissions produced in making the computers or paper that the combined authority buys. Scope 3 also includes any other emissions not within scope 1 and 2.
