UK Environmental Accounts: 2022
Beth sydd yn y bwletin?
- UK greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on a residence basis fell by 13% between 2019 and 2020, to just over 478 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (Mt Co2e).
- Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions implemented in the UK in the first quarter of 2020 are likely to be the main driver of the decline in GHG emissions.
- Consumer expenditure is still the largest contributor to UK emissions; it was responsible for 26% of all greenhouse emissions in the UK in 2020.

Atmospheric emissions: greenhouse gases by industry and gas
The emissions of carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydro-fluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, sulphur hexafluoride, nitrogen trifluoride and total greenhouse gas emissions, by industry (SIC 2007 group –around 130 categories), UK, 1990 to 2020 and (provisional) 2021.
Energy use: total

UK Environmental Accounts: 2022
Measuring the contribution of the environment to the economy, impact of economic activity on the environment, and response to environmental issues.
An examination of the size and composition of environmental taxes between 1993 and 2014. Including an analysis by type of environmental tax, a consideration of who pays the taxes and a comparison with other European countries. Main findings show that environmental taxes raised £44.6 billion in the UK in 2014, providing 7.5% of all revenue from taxes and social contributions
Greenhouse gas emissions
Estimates of greenhouse gas emissions in 2013, for which UK residents and UK-based businesses are directly responsible (whether in the UK or overseas). These estimates have been produced on a consistent basis with the UK's national accounts and provide an important indicator for the environmental pressure caused by the UK's economic activities. Main findings show that greenhouse gas emissions in 2013 were estimated to be 2% lower than in 2012, and 23.6% lower than in 1990.
UK Natural Capital Freshwater Ecosystem Assets and Services Accounts
This paper is a first attempt by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to develop initial experimental statistics on UK freshwater ecosystem assets and ecosystem services. Selecting a number of indicators, this paper shows the condition of UK freshwaters between 2008 and 2012. On an experimental basis, ONS also estimates that the monetary value of UK freshwaters was £37 billion in 2012, 26% higher than in 2008. This is mainly due to an increase in the monetary value of UK open waters. It is important to emphasise this monetary value is based on a limited number of ecosystem services that are covered by these accounts. The methodology to develop these indicators and monetary estimates remains under development and the estimates reported should be considered experimental. Further work will be undertaken to develop and improve them.
UK Natural Capital Land Cover in the UK
We take a look at land cover ecosystem accounts for the United Kingdom (UK). The land cover accounts based on data from the Countryside Survey show that the land cover changed significantly in the UK between 1998 and 2007.
