Supplementary notes

The source adds the following methodology "The data comes from the EU Union Registry, the publicly accessible online database that keeps record of the verified emissions from each installation and aviation operator which are part of the EU Emission Trade System (ETS).
The EU ETS is the world's biggest carbon market. All major polluters across the EU are required to sign up to it. This is one of the few registries that record emissions from the aviation sector, but those emissions come only from intra-EU flights.
The database contains 985 installations in the UK, which account for 129 million tonnes of emissions. This is 30% of all the CO2 produced in the UK in 2019.
Sky News has looked at the 70% most polluting installations, and it has tracked who are the ultimate owners of those plants.
The total number of emissions attributed to each group is conservative and should be treated as “at least”, as it does not take into account CO2 emission from other sources under the companies' control."
