Member States are ranked by increasing absolute gap between their non‑ETS emissions and non‑ETS targets. The non-ETS targets do not account for possible use of Kyoto mechanisms and carbon sink removals.
On very hot days use public transport rather than your car.

This is the main ingredient of poor air quality and photo-chemical smog, which can cause breathing difficulties. To find out the level of ozone pollution across Europe, go to EEA's Live Ozone Map.
