The Carbon Scenario Tool has been developed as a joint funded project between the University of Edinburgh and the Scottish Funding Council. The tool was designed principally to manage, report and forecast carbon emissions for the University’s estate and operations. It contains the facility to produce both a forecast based on known estate changes and also a less data-intensive scenario, based on growth patterns in student and staff numbers and floor area.
A blank version of the tool is available for use by other higher and further education establishments. The outputs of the Carbon Scenario Tool enable organisations to better understand the drivers of carbon emissions from their operations and help inform Climate Change plans, as well as strategic decisions regarding investment in future estate and the impact of potential projects.
This webinar took place on 30th June 2016, funded by EAUC-Scotland and the University of Edinburgh and led by Clare Wharmby from Carbon Forecast Ltd., and provided an introduction to the tool background, structure and capabilities and a live demonstration of how to build a carbon scenario.
Please find attached a copy of the slides and the demonstration version of the tool used in the webinar, as well as a blank version of the tool for your own use.
