More information

Based on:
• projections of ESD emissions submitted by Member States in 2015 and 2016 (8 Member States submitted updates in 2016);
• 2005 ESD base-year levels, calculated by EEA so as to be consistent with the relative 2020 ESD target (expressed in the 2009 ESD as a percentage of 2005 emissions) and the absolute 2020 target (set in a 2013 Commission Decision). The EEA calculates 2005 ‘ESD base-year emissions’ as follows: ESD base-year emissions = 2020 absolute target/(1 + % of 2020 ESD target).
