UK's carbon footprint


Annual greenhouse gas and carbon dioxide emissions relating to UK consumption. The worldwide production of goods consumed in the UK is taken into account, as well as goods produced in the UK and emissions directly generated by UK households. The data page notes that the data for 1990 to 1996 is included in the spreadsheet, but does not have the same level of confidence as the data from 1997 onwards. Some data are in Open Office ODS format and some in MS Excel format.
