Emissions of greenhouse gases according to IPCC guide-lines


This table contains figures on the total Dutch emissions of the greenhouse gases CO2, N2O and CH4 by both stationary and mobile sources. It offers an insight in the emissions as reported within the framework of reporting commitments for the United Nations Climate Treaty (UNFCCC) and the European Union Monitoring Mechanism for Greenhouse gases.
The emissions haven been calculated according to the IPCC-guidelines. The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) is a UN organization that reports on the state of affairs of the scientific knowledge concerning climate changes and related issues. The CO2 figures include the emissions caused by the use of. This source accounts for about 0.1 billion kilograms.
According to the activity classification (SIC 2008) the coke factory of Tata Steel belongs to the energy sector. In this table it’s emissions are assigned to the category manufacture of iron and steel.

Data available from: 1990

Status of the figures:
In order to obtain a consistent time series the complete data set is (re)calculated when necessary, so as to be able to include the latest insights in the survey, especially in the case of emission factors.

Changes as of 1 April 2020:
A small difference has been observed between the Statline figures and the Emissiregistratie (RIVM) figures for CO2. Some figures have been wrongly calculated on Statline. These figures have been corrected now. It concerns the figures for CO2 mobile sources of Road transport, Agriculture and Other sectors.

Changes as of 14 February 2020:
Replacement of 2018 provisional figures by definitive figures.

When will new figures be published?
Provisional figures of 2019 will be published in September 2020.
