Greenhouse gas emissions have fallen to their lowest level since 1990.
A report published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) also shows energy consumption from renewable and waste sources reached a record high in 2014, accounting for 7.1% of total energy consumption.
The amount of resources consumed per person is shown to have fallen 30.4% between 2000 and 2014.
It shows UK woodland provided the equivalent of £5.6 billion of ecosystem services in 2014.
Environmental Protection Expenditure stood at £15.4 billion in 2014, accounting for 1.9% of total government spending.
The report shows a continuing trend of road transport fuel switching from petrol to diesel. Between 2013 and 2014, diesel use increased by 3.3% whereas petrol use decreased by 2%.
Richard Tonkin, Assistant Director for Sustainability and Environment at the ONS, said: “We can see that greenhouse gas emissions have fallen by 28% over the last 25 years, driven by reductions in emissions from the manufacturing and energy supply, water & waste sectors. This trend continued between 2013 and 2014, largely due to reductions in carbon dioxide and methane emissions in the energy supply, water & waste sector.”
