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.

When travelling to exotic places, choose your souvenirs carefully.
Trade in items such as woodcarvings, red coral or ornaments with fur or feathers, is often regulated and permits are required to bring them home. Check the rules, as there are strict laws governing exports of wildlife and you could risk having your souvenir confiscated.
