European Union Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1970-2021

Total greenhouse gas emissions in kt of CO2 equivalent are composed of CO2 totals excluding short-cycle biomass burning (such as agricultural waste burning and Savannah burning) but including other biomass burning (such as forest fires, post-burn decay, peat fires and decay of drained peatlands), all anthropogenic CH4 sources, N2O sources and F-gases (HFCs, PFCs and SF6).
  • European Union greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2012 was 4,116,310.46, a 1.05% decline from 2011.
  • European Union greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2011 was 4,160,115.73, a 1.83% decline from 2010.
  • European Union greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2010 was 4,237,719.79, a 1.53% increase from 2009.
