In order to calculate the GHG emissions targets for the years 2020 and 2050, the 1990 EU-27 raw value of thousands of tonnes CO2-eq. is used as the base year for the calculations. For 2020, 20% of the EU-27 1990 raw value is subtracted from the original EU-27 1990 raw value. For 2050, the 80% of the EU-27 1990 raw value is subtracted from the original EU-27 1990 raw value.
