Approximated EU GHG inventory: proxy GHG estimates for 2015
This 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.

The Data Access Guidebook for Sustainable Energy Action Plans has been released!
Energy data is crucial for identifying trends in the economic priority sectors to target energy policies and to ensure energy efficiency improvements and increased renewable energy deployment. These measures can then be built in to sustainable energy policies and plans, and their national and local implementation progress can be monitored periodically. The […]
Using data to help Kent identify business opportunities and threats in the low carbon economy
Kent County Council is one of 9 partners participating in an Interreg IV A 2 Seas-funded project called Fusion which aims to grow the economy of the 2 Seas region through ‘eco-innovation’, without increasing the ecological footprint of the region. As part of the project Kent County Council will support the development of new sustainable business models in Kent and the expansion of the low carbon, environmental technologies sector through developing effective policies and strategies and targeted business support packages.
