Current progress of Member States towards their ESD targets
Member States are ranked according to their 2020 ESD targets, from the largest required reduction (Luxembourg, which has a target of –20 %) to the largest allowed increase (Bulgaria, which has a target of +20 %) compared with 2005 base-year levels.
• 2014 greenhouse gas emissions covered by the ESD as determined following the 2016 comprehensive review of national greenhouse gas inventory data pursuant to Article 19(1) of Regulation (EU) No 525/2013;
• 2015 approximated ESD emissions calculated by EEA on the basis of:
- approximated GHG inventories submitted by 31/07/2016 under Article 8 of Regulation (EU) No 525/2013;
- 2015 ETS verified emissions (EUTL extract of 08/09/2016);
- 2014 CO2 emissions from domestic aviation from 2016 GHG inventories;
- 2014 total NF3 emissions from 2016 GHG inventories;
• 2005 ESD base-year levels, calculated by EEA so as to be consistent with the relative 2020 ESD target (expressed in the 2009 ESD as a percentage of 2005 emissions) and the absolute 2020 target (set in a 2013 Commission Decision). The EEA calculates 2005 ‘ESD base-year emissions’ as follows: ESD base-year emissions = 2020 absolute target/(1 + % of 2020 ESD target).
