Approximated EU GHG inventory: proxy GHG estimates for 2015

Data4Action

eea_ghg-inv-2015_xsThis EEA report provides estimates of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the European Union (EU) and its Member States for 2015, covering the full GHG inventory (all sectors, except land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF), and all gases).
These estimates are also referred to as approximated (‘proxy’) estimates or inventories in this report as they cover the year for which no official GHG inventories have been prepared yet. The proxy inventories in this report are based on GHG emission estimates reported by Member States to the European Commission under existing EU legislation (1 ) and on calculations made by the European Environment Agency’s (EEA) European Topic Centre on Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation (ETC/ACM) using activity and/or emission data at country level.
The official submission of 2015 inventories to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will take place in 2017. The proxy estimates greatly improve the timeliness of information on GHG emissions and are used for analysis of emission trends and progress towards EU climate targets.

Checking national implementing measures notified by national authorities:

Source: http://ec.europa.eu/atwork/applying-eu-law/implementation-monitoring/index_en.htm . EU directives set out results that all EU Member States must achieve. National authorities then have the choice of form and method to meet this result. Directives are used to bring different national laws into line with each other, and are particularly common in matters that affect the operation of the single […]
