Changes in EU-15 greenhouse gas emissions by sector
For the transport sector, the 1990 emissions were recalculated after base-year emissions were submitted in initial reports, which generated an inconsistency between the two numbers. For industrial processes, the relative importance of fluorinated gases (for which most Member States chose 1995 as the base year) results in a significant difference between base-year emissions and 1990 emissions. Several Member States did not report projections for all sectors or scenarios. Therefore, the information on the total EU15 projections is based on gap-filling and should be interpreted with care. International marine and aviation not included in the categories Energy and Transport.
