CO2 Emissions

This data shows estimates of carbon dioxide emissions within the scope of influence of local authorities, in tonnes of CO2 per Person per Year.

This government data aims to provide nationally consistent carbon dioxide emission estimates at local authority and regional level. The data is regarded as sufficiently robust for setting baselines. On their own however, these estimates cannot give all the information needed to plan and monitor the progress of all local emissions reduction initiatives, which may require additional local monitoring.

Methodology information and further data, for example CO2 sub-totals shown by sector, are available from the source weblink. The methodology may be subject to refinement (hence estimates may be recalculated for previous years).
