Carbon Emissions

Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) publish national statistics on UK local authority and regional carbon dioxide emissions, including per Capita Emissions in tonnes. This data reflects 'territorial emissions' (emissions which are generated in the UK), which is the basis for how the UK reports on emissions internationally. BEIS data also provides sectoral breakdown such as whether the emissions are based on transport or industry.

Per Capita Emissions (t)

(Buckinghamshire, 2018)

5.2 tonnes

Buckinghamshire (5.2 T) has per person emissions in line with the national average (5 T). The total emissions by county can vary by a large degree to other counties, however the per person emissions tend to be closer. There are a range of factors which may influence the total carbon and per person emissions, such as the population of the area and how rural or urban it is in character.


Transportation-related emissions, when combined, account for 51% of emissions in Buckinghamshire. Although motorways account for only 1.8% of the total length of roads in Buckinghamshire, they account for 45% of transport emissions and 23% of total emissions.
