Figure 26.1 Annual emissions per sector, 1970 to 2014 (1,2,3,4,5,6)
Source: Energy and Climate Change
Data for 2014 are provisional
Geography also includes Crown Dependencies
Provisional 2014 CO2 emissions for the agriculture, waste and LULUCF sectors are assumed to be the same as 2013 estimates as unlike other CO2 estimates these cannot be estimated from energy statistics
The entire time series is revised each year to take account of methodological improvements in the UK emissions inventory
Emissions are presented as carbon dioxide equivalent in line with international reporting and carbon trading. To convert carbon dioxide into carbon equivalents, divide figures by 44/12
Emissions from the land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF) sector are only included from 1990 onwards as data are not available prior to 1990. In 1990 net LULUCF emissions amounted to 2.9 MtCO2.
