How many double-decker buses would be filled by the CO2 produced by London's households?

London's domestic emissions would fill over 140 million double-decker buses, which if parked end to end would stretch around the world 35 times.

Or in more realistic terms, this is more than the total carbon emissions produced by Costa Rica, Nepal, Iceland, Albania and Uganda put together.

Urgent action to improve the energy efficiency of London's housing stock will be key to meeting London's target of a 60% reduction in CO2 (i.e. 15 million hot air balloons) by 2025.
