State of Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the EU

Following the EU’s adoption of a new climate 2030 target (both with a higher number but also with a different scope), and keeping in mind the upcoming launch of the European Commission’s Fit for 55 Package you may be interested in the attached update from CAN Europe which shows where emissions actually are in the EU, but also get some further understanding of the EU’s budget approach of its climate legislation and the different targets and reporting strands the EU has.

Update provides actual emission changes for each Member State for:
• emission reductions excluding removals for 2018 and 2019;
• net emission reductions including removals (reflecting the new 2030 climate target) for 2018;
• emission reductions in the sectors covered by the Effort Sharing Directive (ESD) for 2019.
