Reducing CO2 emissions
Since 2012, we’ve produced a carbon report each year.
It provides a transparent, year-on-year account of progress made to reduce carbon emissions from our operations and Haringey as a whole.
The report includes annual carbon budgets. This enables us to understand and account for our carbon emissions. Carbon budgets work in much the same way as financial budgets.
Summary of the 10th Annual Carbon Report
We have reduced our emissions by 36.7% since 2005. We saw a decrease of 1.3% in carbon emissions between 2017 and 2018, which is in line with the trend in neighbouring boroughs and Greater London.
These figures are based on the 2018 emissions data published by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in 2020. We are on track to hit our 40% reduction target by 2020, which will be confirmed in the 2022 Annual Carbon Report.
If you need older reports, please contact us.
We, and 4 other London Boroughs, commissioned a report from London Energy Transformation Initiative (external link).
The report provides evidence on the potential to achieve greater carbon reductions on site through new development. The report was finalised in May 2020.

3 main issues
The report addresses 3 main issues:
- Ability to achieve the zero-carbon target on site for a range of development categories.
- Appropriateness of the current carbon offsetting approach.
- How the carbon offsetting price can encourage greater carbon reductions on site.
New Local Plan
The report forms part of the evidence base for our New Local Plan. Feedback on the report was first requested as part of the New Local Plan: First Steps Engagement.
We are considering how we can implement the report’s recommendations in Haringey. We will seek feedback from stakeholders as part of the next engagement step on the New Local Plan.
