Carbon Dioxide Emissions, Borough

Carbon Dioxide Emission Estimates. Local and Regional CO2 Emissions Estimates for 2005-2010 plus, subset data of CO2 emissions within the scope of influence of Local Authorities (previously called National Indicator 186: Per capita CO2 emissions in the LA area) by sector.

Estimates of total CO2 emissions, and emissions per capita of population, are both on an end-user basis.

The subset data represents carbon dioxide emissions within the scope of influence of Local Authorities. This dataset was used to report progress against National Indicator 186. The full dataset includes all the emissions that occur within the boundaries of each local authority; however, the dataset of emissions within the scope of LAs excludes certain emissions, which it has been considered local authorities are unable to directly influence.

All figures (2005-2009) supersede those published in September 2011.

NOTE: This dataset is different from that published in 'LEGGI' – the GLA’s estimate of London’s carbon footprint. LEGGI uses this data for CO2 emissions from stationary sources only (i.e. homes and workplaces). Data for CO2 emissions from mobile sources (i.e. transport) is sourced from the London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory (LAEI). The GLA believes the LAEI better reflects transport use across all modes in London.
