Making Carbon Count

Background

 

Even in the early stages of my PhD research, it was clear that to truly understand the social and political aspects of accounting I would have to turn my own hand to the practice.

This page is the result of that work, mainly drawing upon work completed for the Manchester CO2 group.

My research has highlighted the need to make different perspectives on our carbon footprint available to inspire a fully rounded political debate. The accounts are provided for that reason and are conducted in that ethos: detailing decisions, assumptions and blind spots.

The reports provided aren’t completely accessible to every reader and occasionally use technical language. I hope to distil key points in a blog post in the near future.

These reports have been double checked, nonetheless they may contain errors and have not been fully independently verified.
