Despite a 20 per cent reduction over the past two decades in UK CO2 production emissions - from industrial production, transport and burning fossil fuels for electricity generation - the latest report from the Committee on Climate Change shows that the country's carbon footprint has actually gone up by ten per cent due to 'imported emissions' through increased imports. Now, CCC Chairman David Kennedy points to "the essential role of a global deal to drive emissions reductions across countries".

The Carbon Trust has broadly welcomed the report. But James Wilde, the Trust's Director of Innovation and Policy, said: "While we agree that a global deal to drive emissions reductions is important, it is our experience that such a deal will never replace action at local level by governments, business and consumers.

"Businesses can benefit by measuring and reducing the carbon embodied in their supply chains and by communicating this to consumers through product carbon labelling."
