One of the most pressing issues faced by local highways authorities is consistent carbon measurement and reporting, and this is tackled this week on Highways Voices.

The main guest is Simon Wilson of Proving Services, who is leading the work with the Future Highways Research Group for Adept, and has already launched a comprehensive guidance document for Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions.

“A key aspect of any strategy for carbon reduction is going to be carbon measurement.,” he explains. “Because otherwise, how can you ever monitor your progress?

But he explains there is a problem in the sector, “At the moment, there is a serious degree of fragmentation around how things are measured, how things are consolidated how things are calculated, and therefore what each organisation’s carbon position currently is.”

Find out how he’s solving it, and why it is so important, on this week’s Highways Voices.

You’ll also hear news of ADEPT’s new policy position on speed management, about the Manual for Smart Streets launch next Monday, ITS (UK)’s Inclusive Mobility Forum to mark Disabled Access Day and LCRIG’s webinar on “Practical Steps on the journey to Net Zero.”

We’ll also hear Adrian Tatum announce this week’s “Adrian’s Accolade” plus a round-up of the week’s news.
