TfL's forecast shows that in 2012, CO2 emissions will be 8.2 million tonnes for the year for London's ground-based transport*.

The ground-based transport CO2 emissions are determined from the London Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory. Figures for 2008 will be released in early 2010. Figures given in the 2007 London Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) were for 2006 at 8.5 million tonnes.
