Cumbria greenhouse gas emissions report

Summary of greenhouse gas emissions in Cumbria

and trajectories towards net zero

Cumbria well knows the devastation that can be wrought on lives by extreme weather events increasingly driven by climate change – floods and high winds have already left their mark on the region. 

We know what we need to do to fight climate change: as individuals, as communities, and as organisations we must reduce our emissions of greenhouse gases as quickly and as completely as possible. 

The data in this report, is an excellent indicator of the scale of the challenge and the key sources of emissions that are controlled or influenced by the behaviour and choices of people living in and visiting Cumbria.
