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 Climate Change Mitigation and Energy (ETC/CME).

European data

2020 GHG projections, reported and quality checked in 2019 and 2020


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 Climate Change Mitigation and Energy (ETC/CME).
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).
The last mandatory reporting year was 2019 but in 2020 13 MS (AT, BE, CY, DK, EE, EL, HU, IE, LV, LT, LU, PL and SI) updated their GHG projections.

For consistency and comparability reasons, in 2020 the same quality checking procedure was used as in 2019. ‘Quality assurance and quality control procedure for national and Union GHG projections (2019)’ can be downloaded from:
