star this property answer text <p>The UK is an Annex I party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The UNFCCC adopted the 2006 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (<a href="https://www.ipcc-nggip.iges.or.jp/public/2006gl/" target="_blank">https://www.ipcc-nggip.iges.or.jp/public/2006gl/</a>) for Annex I countries in Decision 24/CP.19. The UK is thus required to make use of the 2006 IPCC Guidelines in the compilation of the UK’s greenhouse gas inventory. The guidelines define national greenhouse gas inventories as including only emissions which take place within each country’s territorial boundary. Consequently emissions associated with importing minerals from territories outside the UK are not included.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Coal is a globally traded commodity and the UK sources coal from a range of countries including Russia, US, Colombia and Australia. The UK’s overall consumption of coal has been falling - demand in 2017 was less than a quarter of that seen in 2000. Over that period the tonnage of coal imports from Russia has been on a downward trend falling from 18.1m tonnes in 2012 to 3.9m tonnes in 2017, representing a decrease of 78%. Total UK coal imports in 2016 were at their lowest in 34 years due to lower demand from electricity generators and so this year is unrepresentative when compared to 2017 in isolation. In 2016, 2.3 million tonnes (27%) of the UK’s total coal imports came from Russia and this increased to 3.9 million tonnes (46%) in 2017.</p><p>Comparative data for the period 2017-2018 is not yet available.</p><p>This information has been cited from The Digest of UK Energy Statistics (DUKES) available at</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/digest-of-uk-energy-statistics-dukes-2017-main-report" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/digest-of-uk-energy-statistics-dukes-2017-main-report</a></p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/digest-of-uk-energy-statistics-dukes-2018-main-report" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/digest-of-uk-energy-statistics-dukes-2018-main-report</a></p><p>and</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/digest-of-uk-energy-statistics-dukes" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/digest-of-uk-energy-statistics-dukes</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the importance of coal as a raw material for cement producers, and in primary steel production where coke and iron ore are the principle inputs to the blast furnaces at Scunthorpe and Port Talbot. Currently, there are well-functioning global markets for the types of coal required in the UK industrial base and these materials are not in short supply. As part of the Industrial Strategy we have secured a sector deal with the UK construction sector, and remain in close dialogue with the UK steel sector in pursuit of a similar outcome. Through these conversations neither sector has raised concerns regarding coal. In addition to the Department’s current efforts in encouraging all UK businesses to prepare resilient contingency plans to ensure continuation of supply for their key inputs (including materials) as we leave the EU, all commercial operators in these sectors will have been constantly monitoring their key dependencies and risks as responsible businesses.</p>
