Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Planning      

SCATTER free carbon emissions tool for local councils

SCATTER is a GHG emissions measurement and modelling tool built to help local and county authorities in the UK with their climate action planning.

SCATTER allows local authorities and cities to standardise their GHG reporting, align to international frameworks, and to define and build the evidence base for pathways to emissions reduction in line with the Paris Climate Agreement.

SCATTER is free of charge to all local authorities in the UK. Over 250 UK local and county authorities have already used SCATTER, and it is quickly becoming the ‘go-to’ GHG modelling tool for UK authorities.

Anthesis supports cities, regions, and local governments to effectively respond and work towards a more sustainable and resilient future through strategy development and engagement.

Moving from the “what” to the “how” can often feel overwhelmingly complex, with many unique local and national factors at play. Our breadth and depth of experience helps to simplify this process, distil key priorities, and identify the ‘no regrets’ opportunities. Most importantly, with so many regions now embracing radical action, we pride ourselves on sharing best practice and connecting regions with mutual opportunities to learn from each other.

How we do it

  • National decarbonisation strategies – we support the implementation of various mitigation strategies. These include national scale mitigation (NAMAs), national predicted contributions (INDC) and Low Emissions Development Strategies (LEDS).
  • Local climate action plans – after calculating the baseline emissions, we report on the practical actions local governments can take or influence to reduce emissions, achieve increased socio-economic resilience, and meet their net zero targets.
  • Stakeholder engagement – we design engagement frameworks and facilitate engagement forums to allow the regional authority to engage with internal and external stakeholders to take more ambitious, coordinated action on climate change.
  • Energy policy and strategy design – Following sector-specific analysis, we help local governments to prioritise policies and actions to align a region’s energy strategy with their low carbon ambitions.

Anthesis also supports organisations with building the evidence base required for climate action planning.

Testimonials

Anthesis supported Cheshire East Council in developing our Carbon Neutral Action plan, with their assistance being critical in delivering a tailored solution to our ambition to both be carbon neutral for our operations by 2025 and reduce the footprint of the Borough. They were able to engage, challenge, and bring along our team and management to ensure ownership and understanding of the approach, drawing on best practice and their experience working with other Local Authorities around the UK.

Anthesis helped us to quantify the emissions impact of our stock and operations, as well as considering barriers and enablers to decarbonisation across the various department and functions within our organisation. The work was conducted very professionally via a mixture of desk-based analytics and face-to-face interviews and has been instrumental in reframing our broader strategy and engaging colleagues at all levels, on this critical matter that we face.

SCATTER [Anthesis city carbon footprint tool] offers an important opportunity for us to come together as a city to work out what we want our low carbon future to look like, how we can work together and how we can maximise the health, employment and quality of life benefits for our citizens.
