Scottish Greenhouse Gas Emissions
An annual official statistics publication providing the first release of Scottish greenhouse gas emissions statistics. The emissions figures shown in this release include emissions from international aviation and shipping and provide a separate estimate of Scottish emissions adjusted for trading in the EU Emissions Trading System. The tables from this publication are also provided in Microsoft Excel.

Scottish Greenhouse Gas Emissions 2012. Key Revisions Since 2008 is an occasional statistics paper which documents the key reasons for successive revisions to the greenhouse gas inventories over the last five years, from the 1990-2008 inventory to the 1990-2012 inventory. This paper is intended to assist users’ understanding of the rationale for these successive revisions. There is a discussion of revisions in the 2013 statistics release.
A methodological paper titled Determining a notional Scottish EU ETS cap for 2013 has been produced. This documents the calculations which determine the ‘specified amounts’ for emissions from (i) fixed installations located in Scotland and covered by the EU emissions trading system (EU-ETS) and (ii) aviation covered by the EU-ETS.
The Scottish Government has commissioned a project to understand the uncertainties associated with the estimates of Scottish Greenhouse Gas Emissions in 2013. A link to this project and to the full report can be found in the Scotland Greenhouse Gas Inventory Uncertainties Project webpage.
Scotland's Carbon Footprint
An official statistics publication providing estimates of Scotland’s greenhouse gas emissions on a consumption basis; that is emissions that are associated with the spending of Scottish residents on goods and services, wherever in the world these emissions arise together with emissions directly generated by Scottish households.
