Actual progress of the EU‑15 towards its burden-sharing target in absolute and relative terms

Figure Created 17 Oct 2011 Published 17 Oct 2011 Last modified 29 Nov 2012
The X-axis (0 % line) corresponds to the achievement of the EU-15 reduction target under the Kyoto Protocol (– 8 % compared to base-year emissions). Positive values correspond to contributions to the achievement of the EU-15 Kyoto target, while negative values represent shortfalls. The difference between target and GHG emissions concerns the sectors not covered by the EU ETS, which represent the right emissions and target to consider for the assessment of actual progress towards Kyoto targets.
