CO2 emissions fell by nearly 6% year-on-year in 2019. Despite an increase in fossil-fired thermal generation over the period, related emissions declined, reflecting the marked shift from coal- to gas-fired generation, which emits significantly less carbon.
CO2 emissions from own consumption reached an estimated 2.8 million tonnes (+7% relative to 2018). They are included in the carbon footprint assessments of the industrial sites in question.
