Annex A - list of climate change-related statistics

Official statistics

We have compiled a list of what we consider are the main climate change-related official statistics produced by UK government departments and the devolved governments. This is not a complete list of all statistics that could be considered as climate change statistics – as we outlined in the report, what is included as climate change statistics means different things to different people.
