Additional information

* Liechtenstein: the gap refers to the average 2008–2009 non-ETS emissions because no approximated 2010 GHG emissions are available.

The assessment is based on emissions and the targets of the sectors not covered under the EU ETS, the planned use of flexible mechanisms as well as the expected effect of LULUCF activities. All values are 2008–2010 averages except for Liechtenstein (2008–2009 averages).

'EU-15 (no overachievement)' corresponds to the situation of the EU-15 where all surplus AAUs from target overachievement in the EU-15 are not taken into account, to reflect the possibility that Member States with a surplus could use any remaining allowances for their own purposes and not necessarily make them available to compensate for Member States with a shortfall.
