U.K. Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1970-2021

Total greenhouse gas emissions in kt of CO2 equivalent are composed of CO2 totals excluding short-cycle biomass burning (such as agricultural waste burning and Savannah burning) but including other biomass burning (such as forest fires, post-burn decay, peat fires and decay of drained peatlands), all anthropogenic CH4 sources, N2O sources and F-gases (HFCs, PFCs and SF6).
  • U.K. greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2012 was 585,779.78, a 3.12% increase from 2011.
  • U.K. greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2011 was 568,061.83, a 6.81% decline from 2010.
  • U.K. greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2010 was 609,586.56, a 4.21% increase from 2009.
  • U.K. greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2009 was 584,940.88, a 7.94% decline from 2008.
