In 2020 household emissions in the UK fell by 10%: UK household emissions fell 10% last year, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) confirmed.

According to the most recent ONS report, households responsible for emissions related to consumer expenditure reduced emissions to 133 million tonnes of CO2 in 2020, one of the largest annual reductions in this sector since 1990.

The majority of consumer expenditure emissions come from heating homes and travelling.

From 2019 to 2020 there has been more than a 40% drop,  data shows that transport recorded the biggest fall in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The ONS estimates that the UK’s total greenhouse gas emissions were 480 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent last year.

This corresponds to a 13% deline from 2019 and reflects the largest one-year decline since 1990, when the statistics began.
