Cambridgeshire County Council Net Zero Decarbonisation of Services
Main contract details
Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) declared a Climate and Environment Emergency in 2019. Our Climate Change and Environment Strategy was updated in 2022 and includes the following targets:
- The organisation to reach Net Zero for scopes 1 and 2 by 2030,
- To reach a 50.4% reduction in scope three emissions for the organisation by 2030 (compared to 2018 baseline), and
- To deliver Net Zero across the county by 2045.
Most of the Council’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions fall under scope 3 and our commitment to Net Zero means the Council must reduce its emissions along a 1.5 degree trajectory across scopes 1,2 and 3. Although Scope 3 emissions are indirect emissions from assets not under CCC control, such as those of our contractors and suppliers, it is the Council’s specifications and contracting for these goods and services which drives the creation of these emissions.
The Council has a range of assets and statutory duties. Our carbon footprints have identified the services and assets with the largest carbon emissions under scope 1, 2 and 3. We are now seeking external advice, expertise, and experience on the best ways to reduce carbon emissions (or greenhouse gases) to deliver our Net Zero commitments for the following assets and services: Highways, Waste and Recycling, Rural Estates and Schools.
Although this work is being commissioned separately via different procurement Lots, suppliers are welcome to tender for all Lots. If tendering for all Lots, you must demonstrate how savings/efficiencies in operational costs have been factored into your costs.
The lot structure is as follows:
- Lot 1: Schools Decarbonisation (Education Capital)
- Lot 2: Highways Decarbonisation
- Lot 3: Waste and Recycling Decarbonisation
- Lot 4: Rural Estates Decarbonisation.
There will be cross over and synergies between lots. It is our intention to bring together the successful consultants in a workshop to draw out the links, interdependencies and opportunities from the work undertaken across all of the Lots. Please factor into your cost’s preparation and attendance at this multi-stakeholder workshop.
