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.
