Actual and projected EU-15 greenhouse gas emissions compared with Kyoto target for 2008-2012, including Kyoto mechanisms
Data exclude emissions and removals from land use change and forestry. The EU-15 target including Kyoto mechanisms is based on an estimated projected use of Kyoto mechanisms, as reported by Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Spain, equal to about 2.5 % of the EU target of 8 %. Thus this (theoretical) target for the EU-15 including Kyoto mechanisms is presented in the graph as 92 + 2.5.
