The distance-to-target indicator (DTI) measures the deviation in percentage points of actual emissions in 2004 from a (hypothetical) linear path between base-year emissions and the burden-sharing target for 2010


European data


Additional information

A positive value suggests an under-achievement and a negative value an over-achievement by 2004. The DTI is used as an early indication of progress towards the Kyoto and Member States'' burden-sharing targets. The use of Kyoto mechanisms and carbon sinks was included where data was available.
