The UK''s carbon culprits – revealed

Households in County Down emit the highest levels of carbon in the UK, while the City of London has the lowest carbon emissions, according to a new report published today (November 23rd).

The study, undertaken by the Energy Saving Trust (EST), examined the level of carbon emissions produced by households in every UK local authority, alongside the amount of carbon produced by their transport needs.

They revealed that the highest level of carbon was emitted by households living in rural areas due to the greater amount of car use in these regions, caused by a lack of public transport provision.

Philip Sellwood, chief executive of the EST, said: "This latest report isn''t about singling out local authorities, as each area is unique and has its own challenges and opportunities."

"One thing''s for sure, a targeted, localised approach is critical for reducing household carbon emissions," he added.

The low figures recorded by the City of London reflect the small number of households and cars within its boundaries, with both Glasgow and Belfast also recording the lowest figures in Scotland and Northern Ireland respectively. ADNFCR-1235-ID-18368386-ADNFCR
