Detail

The report shows:

  • greenhouse gas emissions were unchanged between 1990 and 2009. There was an 8% increase between 1990 and 2007, followed by an 8% between 2007 and 2009
  • greenhouse gas emissions from UK international shipping and aviation, based on fuel consumed from UK supplies, increased by 75% between 1990 and 2009
  • domestic transport and international transport make up 20% and 7% of total UK greenhouse gas emissions, respectively
  • as a proportion of total UK greenhouse gas emissions, emissions from transport have increased from 18% in 1990 to 27% in 2009
  • renewable energy in the form of biofuels blended into petrol and road diesel, made up 3.0% of road transport energy consumption in 2010, up from 0.2% in 2005
