More information

Member States are ranked according to their 2020 Effort Sharing targets, from the largest required reduction (Luxembourg, which has a target of -20 %) to the largest allowed increase (Bulgaria, which has a target of +20 %) compared with 2005 base year levels.

Methodology

Based on:
• 2017 historic temissions from national greenhouse gas inventories submitted in 2019;
• 2018 approximated inventories submitted in 2019;
• 2017 and 2018 national annual emission allocations (AEAs) and national 2020 targets under the ESD;
• 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 and revised in 2017). The EEA calculates 2005 ‘ESD base-year emissions’ as follows: ESD base-year emissions = 2020 absolute target/(1 + % of 2020 ESD target).

Unit: Percentage change compared to 2005 ESD base-year levels.
