Answered By: 
The Mayor

Yes, they are. As outlined in Mayor's Question 2019/0220, emissions estimates of taxis, as for all vehicle types, are based on a number of parameters including fleet composition (fuel type and emission Euro standards) and the annual distances covered (i.e., the mileage). Estimated changes in both fleet composition and mileage are taken into account in the calculation of emissions in future years.
