Multiple charts: CO2 emissions for different transport in the European Union

The graph below shows CO2 emissions for different forms of transport in the European Union. The Pie Chart shows the percentage of European Union funds being spent on different forms of transport.

Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information in the graph below.

You should write at least 150 words.

Model Answer 1:

The bar chart summaries how much C02 is discharged for one-kilometre travel by a passenger in different transportations and the pie chart shows the ratio of European Union’s expenditure for a variety of transport systems. Generally speaking, air travel emits the highest amount of Carbon Dioxide and EU spend the most on the road carriers.

As can be seen, one-kilometre air travel for a passenger is responsible for roughly 375 grams of CO2 emission which is significantly higher than that of other modes of travel. A car passenger contributes to approximately 130 grams CO2 while this is nearly 70 grams for a bus commuter. Coaches, rails and maritime produces almost 50 grams of CO2 for one-kilometre passenger travel.

According to the pie chart, more than half of the EU budget is spent on road transport system which is the highest. Nearly one-third of the budget is allocated for the rail transports while one-tenth goes on public transports. Despite emitting the highest CO2 per traveller, air transports receive only 1% of the EU’s budget. All other transport systems receive 1-2% of the EU budget each which is relatively much lower the spending on roads and railways.

Sample Answer 2:  

The graphs outline the amount of Carbon dioxide emission per passenger from different vehicles in the European Union and the EU expenditures on different modes of transportation. Overall, the highest amount of CO2 per person is emitted by the Air transports and the European Union spends the highest percentage of funds for the road transportation system.

According to the bar graph, a single passenger of a personal car is responsible for around 130 gm of CO2 per kilometre while a passenger in a bus contributes to 65 gm CO2 eruption per kilometre. Coaches, maritime and rail passengers emit the lowest amount of CO2 which is about 50 grams per passenger. Finally, an aeroplane traveller contributes to 370 km of CO2 per kilometre which is the highest.

Based on the pie chart, the European Union spent the highest amount (52%) on the road transportation system while spent only 1% to 2% on ports, waterway airport intermodal and other transport systems. They spent 31% on the rail system and 10% on the public transportation system. This indicates the European Union spent the majority of the budget on public transportations.
