The Emissions Performance Standard (EPS) measures greenhouse gases released from London’s local authority waste management activities and forms a core part of the Mayor’s Municipal Waste Management Strategy. The EPS aims to achieve significant carbon dioxide (CO2)  emission savings from the management of London’s local authority waste. The EPS focuses on treatment of waste with an emphasis on recovering materials which deliver greater CO2 reductions. 

Since 2011, the cumulative amount of CO2 emissions has reduced which is the equivalent to taking 105,000 cars of the road for one year. This technical report looks at London's performance and provides more detail in to each London borough performance. You can read a short summary or the full technical report.
