Reports and statistics
The Council produces reports which set out progress against national indicators, or which cover issues in the Borough.
Greenhouse gas emissions
Councils in England are required by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to measure and report on their Greenhouse Gas Emissions from their own estate and operations. Runnymede Borough Council's Greenhouse Gas Emissions Report for 2019/2020 achieved a reduction from 2,951.38 tonnes CO2e (baseline taken in 2009/2009) to 1,818.35 tonnes CO2e - a 62% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from our own operations.
We have bid for funds to support a low carbon LED lighting scheme in some of our operational properties to replace existing lighting and hopes to receive further funding to identify other projects to reduce carbon emissions across its own estate and operations.

Home Energy Conservation Act Reports
The Home Energy Conservation Act 1995 (HECA) requires councils in England to submit a report to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) every two years demonstrating what energy conservation measures they have adopted to improve the energy efficiency of residential accommodation. This covers measures to improve properties in the owner-occupier, private rented sector, and social rented sector. BEIS uses data submitted through the HECA returns to inform policy thinking on energy efficiency, and to build an ongoing picture of local and national energy efficiency policy delivery.
