I am searching for a carbon efficiency reporting for UK government. To my understanding this data should have been reported in the past as per the CRC scheme in this or similar pages. However it appears as data has been removed. Anybody knows where to find this data, or any other data source on carbon emission by companies?

The Environment Agency publishes a dataset titled "Annual CO2 emissions from regulated installations" on data.uk.gov. The data is a pooled cross section of regulated facilities and their emissions between 2013 and 2018. From the dataset summary:

Annual emissions of carbon dioxide equivalent from installations in England holding a Greenhouse Gas Emissions Permit under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme. Revision in July 2019 to add 2017 and 2018 emissions data. Attribution statement: © Environment Agency copyright and/or database right 2016. All rights reserved.

  • The data seems to refer to specific installations, not company-wide. It's a start but I was hoping to find data on at least the largest UK companies.

  • Will aggregating to the operator level not work in your case?

  • Not enough for my purpose - as there's only a few operators there, out of the tens of thousands of large UK companies that are most likely publishing CO2 emissions somewhere. Still, it's a start :)
