A new graphic shows the major contribution of household energy and transport to London's carbon footprint

A breakdown of the biggest contributors to London's carbon dioxide emissions has been produced by the London Sustainable Development Commission and BioRegional.

Household energy (22 per cent) and personal transport (20 per cent) are the two biggest contributors. But other notable contributors include consumer goods (12 per cent) and food (10 per cent).

According to the analysis, consumption in London results in a total of 90 million tonnes of CO2 being produced every year.
