Dataset is not available.

This table contains quarterly and annual figures on the Dutch emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases (nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4) and fluorinated gases. These are the emission figures broken down into six climate sectors (Industry, Power, Mobility, Built Environment, Agriculture, LULUCF), as used within the Dutch Climate Agreement, and in accordance with internationally established IPCC regulations. The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) is an organization of the United Nations that prepares reports on scientific knowledge about climate change.

Data available from: 1st quarter of 2019

Status of the figures:
The figures for the four quarters of 2023 have a provisional status, just like the annual figure for 2023. The four quarters of 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 and their annual figures have a final status.
In order to obtain coherent and consistent time series, the complete data set is recalculated annually (including those with a final status, in accordance with IPCC regulations), so that the latest insights, especially with regard to the emission factors, can be included in the recalculation. The annual recalculation takes place when the 4th quarter of the most recent reporting year is published (mid-March).

Changes as of 13 March 2024:
The figures for the fourth quarter of 2023 are included, just like the annual figure for 2023. Also the entire time series have been slightly revised (quarterly and annual data; 2019-2023).

When will new figures be published?
New preliminary quarterly figures are published two and a half months after the end of the quarter.
