Past and projected EU-15 greenhouse gas emissions compared with Kyoto target for 2008-2012

Additional information

The Kyoto mechanisms account for 2.5 % of the EU target of 8 %, and activities under Articles 3.3 and 3.4 contribute an additional 0.9 %. For more information on Kyoto mechanisms and carbon sinks, see Chapters 7 and 9. This relies on the optimistic assumption that decreasing trends between 2005 and 2010 are maintained until 2012 and on the fact that the amount of emissions over-delivered by some Member States is not used for international emissions trading outside the EU15.
