CO2 emissions for total transport and main modes (road, rail, water, domestic air) are directly extracted from EEA inventories.
CO2 emissions by road transport modes (cars, trucks and light vehicles, bus) are calculated from energy consumption by modes according to a sample of 15 countries available in ODYSSEE and extrapolated to EU-27.
