Climate Change: Everyone’s Business


CO2 emissions levels in the UK are produced by the following sectors:

Business   Sector

Business Sector   Business Sector  
Agriculture

9%

Industry 25% Transport 24%
Buildings

17%

Power 24% Other 1%

We must more than double the emissions savings due from existing programmes to meet our current goals. The following interesting/scary statistics detail some of the highlights.

2% of firms account for 80 per cent of emissions from industrial processes and business use of buildings

30% of existing power-generating capacity will have to be replaced by 2025

30% of energy businesses buy is wasted

By 2030, nearly 60 per cent of the required emissions savings must come from more efficient energy use at home, in business and in transport

By 2030 electrical products will need to be at least 30 per cent more efficient than they are today, and emissions from the average new car will have to fall by at least 40 per cent.
