Experimental statistic estimating the global environmental impacts of consumption: 2022 version 2022

Freshwater Marine Terrestrial JNCC Publications 0963-8091 UK 715 Environmental accounting

Abstract

Provided here is the 2022 version of the experimental statistic estimating the global environmental impacts of consumption for a range of impact metrics.

A fiche summarising the latest results (up to the year 2018) is provided, along with a datasheet containing the underlying data. These resources are accompanied by the technical report (JNCC Report No. 715), which constitutes the technical and methodological documentation for the experimental statistic, and provides an explanation of methods used; along with several additional datasets, which are explained in the report:

  • results-total-annual – aggregated results showing the total estimate for each impact type associated with all UK consumption (of all commodities and from all countries/territories combined) for each year.
  • producing-country-results: results showing the total estimate for each impact type associated with UK consumption, broken down by the producing country in which the impact took place (but aggregated across all commodities produced within that country) for each year.
  • commodity-results: results showing the total estimate for each impact type associated with UK consumption, broken down by the commodity responsible for the impact (but aggregated across producing countries from which the commodities came) for each year.
  • uk-results-disaggregated: results showing the estimate for each impact type associated with UK consumption for each commodity in each country of production.

Additional datasets, including those relevant to other consuming countries assessed, can be downloaded from the associated dashboard.

These resources may not be fully accessible for all users. If you need a copy of any of these resources in a different or more accessible format, please get in touch.
