Total EU greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, fluorinated gases)
For these fluorinated gases the year 1995 has been used as base year in this report. These data exclude land-use change and forestry. Global warming potentials used (to give total GWP emissions in Mt carbon dioxide equivalent): carbon dioxide=1, methane=21 and nitrous oxide=310, and different country specific values for each of the fluorinated gases.
