Emissions of the main greenhouse gas by British companies fell by 13.5 million tons.
The reductions in carbon dioxide output were principally due to falling steel production at Corus.
The Anglo-Dutch company is going to close down some of its UK steel plants.
Also weather has played its role in reduction of gas emissions as the weather gets warmer and energy use for heating decreases.
Britain is far ahead of its schedule to cut carbon dioxide emissions under the Kyoto Protocol signed by industrialised countries in order to slow and dinally stop warming of the world caused by greenhouse gas.
