Additional information

  • Data compiled and held by EEA and its ETC/ACM. They concern annual emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, PFCs, unspecified mix of HFCs and PFCs, SF6 and NF3 from individual EU countries. Sectoral data (IPCC classification) is provided for the following main source categories: Energy, Industrial Processes and Product Use, Agriculture, Land-Use Change and Forestry, Waste, Other, CO2 emissions from Biomass, indirect CO2 and International bunkers and Multilateral Operations.

 

  • “UK (Convention)” covers the territory of the United Kingdom, including Gibraltar, and excluding Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies. This scope is consistent with EU domestic targets (e.g. Effort Sharing Decision) and the EU submission under the UNFCCC.
  • “UK (KP)” covers the territory of the United Kingdom, including Gibraltar, and the Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies which have ratified the Kyoto Protocol. This scope is consistent with the UK’s submissions under the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol, and with the EU’s submissions under the Kyoto Protocol (which also includes Iceland).
  • “EU28 (Convention)” covers strictly the EU territory and includes in particular the inventory data reported under “UK (Convention)”. This scope is consistent with the EU’s submission under the UNFCCC (EUA).
  • “EU (KP)” covers the EU territory as well as Iceland and the United Kingdom’s Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies which have ratified the Kyoto Protocol. This scope is consistent with the EU’s joint submission (with Iceland) under the Kyoto Protocol (EUC).
