The greenhouse gas emission outlook has been presented in the Fifth Government Report for the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The presented national projections included forecast greenhouse gas emissions until 2030 (divided into 2015, 2020 and 2030), taking into account the adopted and implemented policies and measures aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. These projections constitute a “with measures” scenario. Under the “with measures” scenario, the forecast emissions of greenhouse gases, in particular CO2, are reduced by 2020, then increase in 2030, reaching the level of 387 948 Gg of CO2 equivalent.
