(2) what the level of carbon emissions in the EU was in (a) 2004, (b) 2005 and (c) 2006.
The following table shows the estimated total level of carbon dioxide emissions for the UK and the EU, 2004-06.
UK EU (27 member states) 2004 554.6 3,858 2005 554.2 3,815 2006 560.6 n/a
EU (27 member states)
Figures are million tonnes of net carbon dioxide emissions (emissions minus removals).
Emissions are presented as carbon dioxide equivalents in line with international standards for reporting and carbon trading. To compute the carbon equivalent of the emission of carbon dioxide, divide by 44/12.
The figures shown do not include any adjustment for the effect of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EUETS), which was introduced in 2005.
The figures shown for the UK for 2006 are provisional. EU emissions figures for 2006 will be published in January 2008.
