This page contains the latest estimates of UK territorial greenhouse gas emissions (emissions that occur within the UK’s borders).
Final estimates of UK greenhouse gas emissions are published annually, covering emissions data from two years prior. The final estimates are presented by source in February each year, then updated in March to include uncertainties and estimates by end-user, and again in June to include estimates by Standard Industrial Classification (SIC). These statistics are used to monitor progress against the UK’s emissions reductions targets.
Provisional greenhouse gas emission estimates are also published annually in March, covering emissions data from one year prior. The provisional estimates are presented by source, and are based on provisional inland energy consumption statistics, which are published in BEIS’s quarterly Energy Trends publication.
The provisional greenhouse gas emissions estimates do not provide as detailed information about the sources of emissions in the UK as the final estimates. However, the provisional statistics publication provides quarterly emissions estimates, as well as estimates on a temperature adjusted basis, which are not included in the final statistics publication.
