This field contains data about scope 1 and 2 emissions from biofuels used in HEP-owned vehicles. The value can be recorded to three decimal places. This is applicable to higher education providers (HEP) in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Reason required: for advice to Government, monitoring progress towards sector carbon targets and for use in producing Capital Investment Framework (CIF) metrics.

Total scope 1 and 2 emissions from biofuels used in vehicles owned or leased by the HEP.

If a figure was returned under Fuel used in HEP owned vehicles biofuels (litres), higher education providers (HEPs) will need to calculate the scope 1 and 2 emissions.

The consumption figure returned by the HEP should be broken down by the type of biofuel, the component figures multiplied by the corresponding Defra conversion factors to produce the scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions. The sum of these should then be returned in this field.

The Defra conversion factors and guidance to support HEPs in returning this field can be found in the downloadable Excel spreadsheet, under the ‘Bioenergy’ tab.
