Marlow’s Carbon Footprint

Marlow Town Council have recently agreed to the challenge to make Marlow a carbon neutral town. But what does this mean and how big is the challenge?

In order to become carbon neutral, we first need to estimate where are the sources of our carbon emissions. In other words, what is Marlow’s Carbon Footprint?

This is very difficult to accurately assess as accurate data in relation to just Marlow and its residents is not readily available. However, to put the challenge of working towards Marlow being a carbon neutral town into perspective, Marlow Energy Group have made some assumptions and propose that the overall footprint could look something like the picture to the left.

One thing we can guarantee – this will not be correct! However we do feel that the emissions in each category will not be too far from our estimate and even if they are out, then if anyone can come up with a more accurate figure then it will definitely give us all something to work on with regard to how to reduce those emissions.
