The natural environment

York’s natural environment contributes 1.8% of the city’s overall emissions, with our agricultural areas on the front line of climate change being the first to feel its impacts.

Livestock contribute 2.6% of the city’s emissions; however, land use practices in York absorb the equivalent of 0.8% of the city’s emissions, which reduces the sector’s overall figure to 1.8%.

We’re taking action to protect and enhance York's biodiversity.
