More information

Each bar represents the sum of annual gaps between historic (2013, 2014, 2015), proxy (2016) or projected (2017–2020) emissions under Decision 406/2009/EC (the Effort Sharing Decision, ESD) and annual emission allocations (ESD targets) for the compliance period 2013 to 2020.

Methodology

Based on:
• 2014 greenhouse gas emissions covered by the ESD as determined following the 2016 comprehensive review of national greenhouse gas inventory data pursuant to Article 19(1) of Regulation (EU) No 525/2013;
• 2015 greenhouse gas emissions covered by the ESD as determined following the 2017 annual review of national greenhouse gas inventory data pursuant to Article 19(1) of Regulation (EU) No 525/2013;
• 2016 approximated ESD emissions calculated by EEA on the basis of:
   - Approximated GHG inventories submitted by 31/07/2017 under Article 8 of Regulation (EU) No 525/2013;
   - 2017 ETS verified emissions (EUTL extract of 19/07/2017);
   - 2015 CO2 emissions from domestic aviation from 2017 GHG inventories;
   - 2015 total NF3 emissions from 2017GHG inventories;
• Projections of ESD emissions for the period 2017 to 2020, submitted by Member States in 2017.
