This figure shows avoided net emissions of greenhouse gases from the waste management sector in EU-27 (minus Cyprus), Norway and Switzerland. More detailed, the figure shows the difference in the net emissions in years 2008 and 2020 scenarios to the base year’s (1995) net emissions
The calculations behind the derived data are presented in the 2010 ETC/SCP paper "Projections of municipal solid waste management and greenhouse gas emissions".
