Please can you clarify if you have calculated the carbon footprint of your local authority area. If so what are your local authority area carbon footprint per capita and carbon emissions per capita.

Response: 

The council has not calculated the carbon footprint for the Thurrock area, but data is available for all councils from the below BEIS website once registered, allowing the calculation of carbon emissions per capita or any other metric wished for.
