In 2017, total greenhouse gas emissions amounted to 192.5 billion CO2equivalents, of which 163.3 billion kg of CO2 emissions. This is 0.6 billion kg lower than mentioned in the CBS publication Monitor of Well-being in May 2018. In the spring of 2019, the series 1990-2017 will become definitive. Greenhouse gas emissions have been calculated in accordance with guidelines under the Kyoto Protocol as introduced in the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (‘2006 Guidelines’).
