Answered By: 
The Mayor

The London Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory (LEGGI) consists of scope 1 and 2 emissions. These emissions are directly relating to combustion of fuels in London and the purchase of electricity, heat and steam. Any emissions relating to extraction within London would be covered in the LEGGI through the activity of extraction itself.
