* According to the UK’s Department of Environment Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), average coach emissions are 0.029 kg CO2e per passenger kilometre (pkm). The equivalent figure for a long haul flight is 0.231 kg CO2e /pkm (includes RFI of 1.9 and uplift of 10% and assumes economy class) and for a large petrol car with 2 passengers = 0.148 kg CO2e/pkm.
