Satellite accounts to the main UK National Accounts measuring the contribution of the environment to the economy, the impact of economic activity on the environment, and society's response to environmental issues.

Main points
  • In 2015, UK households became the biggest users of diesel fuel for road use (DERV), overtaking the transport, storage and communications sector for the first time.
  • The energy efficiency of the UK economy (as measured by its energy intensity) improved in 2015, the continuation of a long-term trend due largely to energy efficiency improvements in the manufacturing and transport, storage and communications sectors.
  • Despite an overall reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, GHG emissions from road transport increased for the second year in a row, by just over 1% between 2014 and 2015.
  • In 2014, households were responsible for 45% of income generated from environmental taxes, paying just under 20 billion.
  • The environmental goods and services sector (EGSS) produced an output of around 61.1 billion in 2014, growing 18.7% between 2010 and 2014.
  • In 2015, UK government spent an estimated 14.7 billion on environmental protection, 1.8% of total government spending.

Satellite accounts to the main UK National Accounts measuring the contribution of the environment to the economy, the impact of economic activity on the environment, and society's response to environmental issues.

Main points
  • Energy consumption from renewable and waste sources has been increasing since 1990; reaching a record high of 14.4 million tonnes of oil equivalent in 2014. These sources contributed 7.1% of total energy consumption.
  • Emissions of greenhouse gases have decreased since 1990; peaking in 1991 at 845.2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent and falling to 608.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2014. This is the lowest level since 1990.
  • The amount of material resources consumed (per person) has decreased by 30.4% between 2000 and 2014, falling from 12.5 tonnes per person to 8.7 tonnes per person.
  • The trend of road transport fuel switching from petrol to diesel continued. Between 2013 and 2014, diesel use increased by 3.3%, whereas petrol use decreased by 2.0%.
  • Since 1997, UK government spend on environmental protection expenditure (EPE) has increased from 4.1 billion to 15.4 billion in 2014, and currently accounts for 1.9% of total government spending

Environmental accounts show how the environment contributes to the economy (for example, through the extraction of raw materials), the impacts that the economy has on the environment (for example, energy consumption and air emissions), and how society responds to environmental issues (for example, through taxation and expenditure on environmental protection).

Main Points
  • Renewable and waste sources accounted for 5.6% of total energy consumed in 2013, compared with 1.2% in 2000.
  • Emissions of greenhouse gases have fallen 23.6% between 1990 and 2013.
  • In 2013, 9.2 tonnes of material resources were consumed per capita, down from 12.6 tonnes in 2000.
  • Environmental tax revenue (in current prices) was 2.5 times greater in 2014 (44.6 billion) compared with 1993 (17.6 billion).
  • UK government spent an estimated 14.4 billion on environmental protection in 2013.

Environmental accounts show how the environment contributes to the economy (for example, through the extraction of raw materials), the impacts that the economy has on the environment (for example, energy consumption and air emissions), and how society responds to environmental issues (for example, through taxation and expenditure on environmental protection).

Environmental accounts are used nationally and internationally, primarily by governments, development organisations and researchers, to inform sustainable development policy, to evaluate the environmental impacts of different sectors of the economy, and to model impacts of fiscal or monetary measures.
