Carbon emissions

Our carbon emissions are produced every year by the Government. The figures lag two years behind the year they are published and are split up into three categories of industry and commercial, domestic and transport which are further sub divided. In addition the figures are presented as a total and as tonnes of carbon emitted per head of population (capita).

We have seen carbon emission per head of population drop from seven tonnes in 2005 to 4.5 tonnes in 2015 taking into account changes in the population of the City over the period.

Figures are available for each year from 2005 - 2015 for each local authority in the country from the GOV.UK website.
