Greenhouse Gas Emission Projections for UK Agriculture to 2030

This paper sets-out new projections of total GhG emissions, and N2O and CH4 emissions, from UK agriculture to 2030.



The greenhouse gas emission projections for UK agriculture in this paper are an up-date to the previous projections produced by DECC in March 2011.

Total greenhouse gas emissions from the sector are projected to fall by around 2% by 2020, over 2009 levels. Previously they were projected to rise by 4%.

The latest emission projections are based on activity projections from the AFBI FAPRI model of UK agriculture.
