Data on greenhouse gas emissions and removals, sent by countries to UNFCCC and the EU Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Mechanism (EU Member States). This data set reflects the GHG inventory data for 2018 as reported under the United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change.

Additional information


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).

Produced Indicators

Used in indicators

Emissions and supply of fluorinated greenhouse gases Emissions and supply of fluorinated greenhouse gases The indicator tracks trends since 1990 in anthropogenic emissions of the fluorinated greenhouse gases listed below. The indicator also tracks trends since 2007 in the supply of fluorinated greenhouse gases. Furthermore, the shares of major intended applications of EU supply are given for the latest available reporting year. EU supply is a parameter derived from company reporting under the F-gas Regulation that provides information on the actual use of fluorinated greenhouse gases by EU industries. It is focussed on potentially emission-relevant supplies of gases to EU industries and thus does not cover supplies intended for feedstock use or destruction. The lists of gases covered in the supply part of the indicator differ between the 2007-2013 time period and the time period starting 2014. For the time period 2007-2013, only data on supply in bulk are available. (The term 'bulk' refers to shipments of gases contained in gas containers of all sizes, ranging from large ISO containers of several tonnes to small gas bottles of a few grams). Since 2014, supply within products and equipment has been recorded. Both of these add up to total EU supply. Bulk supply is calculated by first adding reported amounts for production bulk imports reclamation stocks from own production or imports held on 1 January of the reporting year and then subtracting the following reported amounts: bulk exports amounts used as feedstock amounts imported for destruction amounts from own production sent for destruction before sales stocks from own production or imports held on 31 December of the reporting year. Supply in products and equipment is the gas content of products and equipment imported and placed on the EU market. List of gases  All listed gases are tracked for emissions since 1990. Gases given in bold are not tracked for supply in all years since 2007. Gases beyond the supply scope only for 2007-2013 are given in italics. Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) Perfluorocarbons (PFCs) Other perfluorinated gases HFC-23 PFC-14 (CF4) SF6 HFC-32 PFC-116 (C2F6) NF3 HFC-41 PFC-218 (C3F8)   HFC-43-10mee PFC-3-1-10 (C4F10)   HFC-125 PFC-318 (c-C4F8)   HFC-134 PFC-4-1-12 (C5F12)   HFC-134a PFC-5-1-14 (C6F14)   HFC-143 PFC-9-1-18 (C10F18)   HFC-143a PFC-216 (c-C3F6)   HFC-152     HFC-152a     HFC-161     HFC-227ea     HFC-236cb     HFC-236ea     HFC-236fa     HFC-245ca     HFC-245fa     HFC-365mfc     Where the gases above are used or emitted as part of a mixture of gases, the respective shares are accounted for. For tracking HFC consumption under the Montreal Protocol, only the HFC shares of HFC-containing mixtures are accounted for. HFC-161 is excluded from the scope of the Montreal Protocol.
