Reduction of CO2 emissions in Bracknell Forest between 2005 and 2018

This graph shows that total tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions (tCO2e) fell by almost 300 between 2005 and 2018

The measurement used is tCO2e and separate values are shown for industry and commerce, domestic, transport, land use / land-use change and forestry (LULUCF) with an overall grand totals.
