Official Statistics from Defra, published on the Gov.uk website, state that the average British Emissions are 12-14 Tonnes of CO₂e per person, per year. This is also similar to figures published by the WWF, and other environmental organisations around the world.
Within this figure flights are included, with the average person flying 1 medium/long distance return flight per year, or up to 3 short distance return flights per year. Car Travel - including commuting to work in a medium sized petrol car is also included.
Lifestyle choices and what we do are very important to our carbon footprint and emissions - but in many cases the impact on your overall emissions are less than you think. Lifestyle changes such living a meat free diet, changing your travel methods, buying sustainable and eco-friendly products and looking at your energy usage and provider add up to removing around 1-3 Tonnes of CO₂e emissions per year.
