Greenhouse gas emissions

International agreements to cut emissions

Jersey is a signatory, through the UK, to the Paris Agreement and the International Convention on Climate Change. Jersey agreed to an ambitious emissions reduction trajectory.  This means reducing emissions by 68% by 2030, 78% by 2035 and reaching net zero emissions by 2050. This is measured against a 1990 baseline. 

Jersey's greenhouse gas emissions statistics

We have historical greenhouse gas emissions dating back to 1990. This includes where emissions come from, for example domestic, road and energy industry.

This dataset is publicly available via open data.

Lowering greenhouse gas emissions

Jersey has made a commitment to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Actions to help us to do this are outlined in the Carbon Neutral Roadmap

Although not part of our international reporting, we also consider Jersey's indirect greenhouse gas emissions.
