Gaps between 2008–2010 GHG emissions and targets for the sectors not covered by the EU ETS (without the use of carbon sinks and flexible mechanisms)

A positive value indicates that average 2008–2010 emissions in the non-ETS sectors were lower than the average annual target, taking into account the effect of allowances attributed to the EU ETS and without use of carbon sinks and Kyoto mechanisms.



Additional information

* Liechtenstein: the gap refers to the average 2008–2009 non-ETS emissions because no approximated 2010 GHG emissions are available.
The data used in the calculation of the gaps presented in the graph are available as an annex to this report.

'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.
