New bitesize on carbon emissions

A new environment bitesize on carbon emissions is now available showing:

  • the latest emissions trend and sector breakdown for Oxfordshire and districts;
  • a link and maps from the place-based carbon calculator which provides estimates of the average (consumption based) carbon footprint per person for each Lower Layer Super Output Area (LSOA) in England.

Between 2008 and 2019:

• Total carbon emissions from Oxfordshire fell by 30%. The district with the greatest drop in emissions was Oxford City, which saw a fall of 39%.
• Average carbon emissions per person of Oxfordshire residents fell by 35%, from 8.8t to 5.7t, but remain above the national average.

Average carbon emissions per person in 2019 for Cherwell district was well above both the England and Oxfordshire averages, largely as a result of emissions from transport.
