Notes:
28
1. Figures for each individual gas include the Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry sector (LULUCF). These emissions cover the UK and Crown Dependencies, but exclude emissions from UK Overseas Territories.
29
2. Kyoto basket total differs slightly from sum of individual pollutants above as the basket uses a narrower definition for the Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry sector (LULUCF). This includes emissions from the UK, Crown Dependencies and UK Overseas Territories, as well as emissions from flights between the UK, Crown Dependencies, and Overseas Territories.
30
3. Kyoto base year consists of emissions of CO2, CH4 and N2O in 1990, and of HFCs, PFCs and SF6 in 1995. Includes an allowance for net emissions from LULUCF in 1990.
31
4. The entire time series is revised each year to take account of methodological improvements in the UK emissions inventory.
32
5. Emissions are presented as carbon dioxide equivalent in line with international reporting and carbon trading. To convert Carbon dioxide into carbon equivalents, divide figures by 44/12.
33
6. Figures shown do not include any adjustment for the effect of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EUETS), which was introduced in 2005.
