This chapter of Transport Statistics Great Britain presents statistics on transport energy consumption and the environmental impact of transport, including greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutant emissions.
- overall domestic transport greenhouse gas emissions were unchanged between 1990 and 2009. There was an 8% increase between 1990 and 2007, followed by an 8% decrease between 2007 and 2009
- greenhouse gas emissions from UK international shipping/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.
