Local Authority Emissions Statistics
This page provides the most up-to-date estimates of emissions of carbon dioxide for Local Authority (NUTS4) and Regional (NUTS1) areas and the methodology used for estimatings those emissions.
2010 Local Authority Carbon Dioxide Figures
Published 23 August 2012
Figures published previously for 2005-09 have been revised so that they are directly comparable to the 2010 figures.
The National Statistics documents published are:
The statistical release provides a summary of the key points, including a brief background to the report and details of the supplementary reports.
This report provides a summary of the main findings from the full dataset.
The full dataset provides both detailed and summary emission breakdowns for each local authority: 2005-2010.
This dataset - previously know as National Indicator (NI) 186 - provides both detailed and summary emission breakdowns for each local authority for CO2 emissions within the scope of influence of Local Authorities for 2005-2010. Only a subset of the sectors from the full dataset are included within this dataset.
