We use the average UK citizen’s carbon emissions as 10.51 tonnes per year, as this aligns with the WWF’s estimate of an average UK citizen's footprint; calculated using data from the Office for National Statistics.

The WWF’s calculations have been examined by Professors Thomas Wiedmann and John Barrett, who specialise in environmental footprint analysis and carbon accounting.

More information on WWF’s methodology can be found here.
