Description

These are sometimes referred to “consumption emissions”. Scotland’s carbon footprint is associated with the spending of Scottish residents on goods and services, wherever in the world these emissions arise along the supply chain, and those which are directly generated by Scottish households through private motoring and heating. The purpose of this dataset is to find out what effect Scottish consumption has on greenhouse gas emissions, by taking into account where the goods we buy come from and their associated supply chains.

These figures are different to territorial emissions which are presented within the “Scottish Greenhouse Gas Emissions” dataset. The carbon footprint refers to greenhouse gas emissions that are associated with the spending of Scottish residents on goods and services, wherever in the world these emissions arise along the supply chain, and those which are directly generated by Scottish households; for example, through heating and private motoring. Scotland's Carbon Footprint has been calculated in 4 steps:

  • Step 1. Develop an Input-output (IO) model;
  • Step 2. Develop a Multi-Regional Input-Output (MRIO) model;
  • Step 3. Develop UK Based MRIO Model;
  • Step 4. Develop the Scottish Consumption Based Account (the Scottish Carbon Footprint).

The carbon footprint is not calculated in the same way as Scotland's greenhouse gas emissions, which occur within a country's borders. http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Environment/Publications
