Table description


This table contains annual figures on the total Dutch emissions of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4), broken down into stationary and mobile sources.
Fluorine-containing gases that contribute to the greenhouse effect are not included.
The greenhouse gas emissions to air have been calculated according to the regulations of the climate panel IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). IPCC was founded by the United Nations and aims to map and share the available knowledge in the field of climate, climate change and its consequences.

Data available from: 1990

Status of the figures:
The figures from 1990 to 2020 are final. 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 8 September 2022:
Addition of provisional figures 2021.

When will new figures be published?
Final figures for 1990 to 2021 will be published in February 2023.

Description topics

CO2
Carbon dioxide.

CO2 is formed by the combustion of carbon in fuels. Greenhouse gas (causes the temperature of the earth's atmosphere to rise gradually).
CH4
Methane (= natural gas).

Among other causes CH4 is formed by incomplete combustion of fuels, leakage from the natural gas network, and by fermentation. Greenhouse gas (causes the temperature of the earth's atmosphere to rise gradually).
