WYCA audits CO2 impact of projects

18 April 2020

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority is procuring consultants to develop a method for assessing the carbon dioxide emissions from all of the CA’s proposed transport projects. Craig Taylor, WYCA’s head of portfolio management office, told councillors that the assessment tool would “allow the combined authority to map and detail the emissions footprint of the 180+ projects in the West Yorkshire Plus Transport Fund and Leeds City Region Local Growth Fund pipeline”. “This will ensure that the business cases for these reflect the Leeds City Region climate emergency and that we can evidence that they will reduce carbon emissions (both directly and indirectly).” A consultant was due to be appointed by the end of March. The technical work should be completed by September.
