“Emissions from transport fell by 1.4% (1.8 MtCO2e) in 2018, their first fall since 2013. Despite this transport remains the largest emitting sector, responsible for 28% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK. Transport emissions are only 3.0% lower than in 1990, as increased road traffic has largely offset improvements in vehicle fuel efficiency.” National Statistics 2020 – 2018 greenhouse gas emissions final figures p1.
