About the Project

Setting City Area Targets and Trajectories for Emissions Reduction (SCATTER)

This work was developed as part of the Setting City Area Targets and Trajectories for Emissions Reduction (SCATTER) project. The SCATTER project, funded by the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), developed a methodology for Local Authorities to set carbon emissions targets that are consistent with United Nations Paris Climate Agreement. The SCATTER project was a collaboration between Tyndall Manchester, Antheis Group and Greater Manchester Combined Authority. The further development of the carbon budget methodology into a widely applicable free online resource for local authorities UK-wide was supported through funding from the University of Manchester EPSRC Impact Support Fund. A SCATTER online tool by Anthesis Group is also available to local authority users online.
