The calculations of GHG emission trends, projections and targets include emissions from international aviation and exclude emissions and removals from the LULUCF sector. The 'with existing measures' scenario reflects existing policies and measures, whereas the 'with additional measures' scenario considers the additional effects of planned measures reported by Member States.

Additional information

The GHG emission trends, projections and targets include emissions from international aviation, and exclude emissions and removals from the land-use sector. The WEM scenario reflects existing policies and measures, while the WAM scenario takes into account the additional effects of planned measures reported by Member States. For the most part, these projections were reported in 2017 and therefore do not reflect the expected effects of recent policy adopted  for the period after 2020.

More information

Historic trends from 1990 to 2016 are represented in solid lines.The 2016–2017 trend is approximated (preliminary estimates). Projections until 2035 are represented in dashed lines.The upper line represents the scenario "with existing measures" (WEM), while the lower line represents the scenario "with additional measures" (WAM). EU targets and objectives for 2020, 2030 and 2050 are represented as bullets.
