Are the Kyoto Protocol targets within reach?
: Total EU greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, fluorinated gases) Note: The EU (Kyoto Protocol) target is a reduction of 8 % below 1990 levels for the basket of six gases: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and fluorinated gases (hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons and sulphur hexafluoride). For these fluorinated gases the year 1995 has been used as base year in this report. These data exclude land-use change and forestry. Global warming potentials used (to give total GWP emissions in Mt carbon dioxide equivalent): carbon dioxide=1, methane=21 and nitrous oxide=310, and different country specific values for each of the fluorinated gases. Data source: EEA compilation of Member States data submitted to UNFCCC and EU Monitoring Mechanism.
