Fluorinated greenhouse gases (f-gases) covered by the UNFCCC’s Kyoto Protocol comprise hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6).
The graphs present the quantities of f-gases reported under different type of activities for years 2007-2011, based on the information submitted by undertakings under Regulation (EC) No 842/2006 (F-Gas Regulation). In cases where less than three companies have reported for the particular year on the specific type of gases, or where there is a lack of detailed information, the aggregated quantities are provided in the 'Unspecified mix of f-gases' totals.
Fly only for distances greater than 700 km. Otherwise take the train. A transatlantic flight produces almost half as much CO2 as an average person produces over a period of one year while meeting all his or her other needs, such as lighting, heating and car travel!
