The Monitoring Mechanism Regulation ((EC) No 525/2013) requires Member States to report national projections of anthropogenic GHG emissions. Every two years, each EU Member State shall report GHG projections in a ‘with existing measures’ scenario for the years 2020, 2025, 2030 and 2035, by gas (or group of gases) and by sector. National projections shall take into consideration any policies and measures adopted at Union level. The reported data are quality checked by the EEA and its European Topic Centre for Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation (ETC/ACM).

European data


Additional information

Data reported by the EU Member States (MS) under the EU Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (MMR) have been quality checked and adjusted if appropriate by the  European Topic Centre for Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation (ETC/ACM).

GHG projections data are presented per MS, year, scenario, category and gas. There are originally reported data and final (corrected or gap-filled when necessary) data. Two types of projections are presented: projections taking into account the (current) existing domestic policies and measures (WEM, with existing measures) and projections taking also into account additional (planned) domestic policies and measures (WAM, with additional measures).
