The Netherlands and the Kyoto target
The Netherlands has cut its greenhouse gas emissions by an average of 4 percent a year in the period 2008-2010 relative to the Kyoto base year, whereas the target is 6 percent. So emissions have to...
Slight drop in greenhouse gas emissions
In 2018, greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands were 2 percent lower than one year previously. This is related to less coal being used for electricity production. The emission intensity of the...
Urgenda reduction target for GHG emissions achieved in 2020
In 2020, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the Netherlands were 25.5 percent below the level of 1990.
Dutch greenhouse gas emissions fall further
The emission of greenhouse gases in the Netherlands fell for the fourth year in a row in 2008.
Half of transport GHG emissions are from aviation
In 2018, the volume of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted by the Dutch transport sector amounted to 26 billion CO2 equivalents.
Quarterly estimates of greenhouse gas emissions
Quarterly estimates of greenhouse gas emission in accordance with the IPCC guidelines.
Emissions to air; greenhouse gases and air pollutants
Determining Dutch emissions to the air, both greenhouse gases and air pollutants, broken down into stationary and mobile sources, and in accordance with international regulations.
Mild winter and economic crisis curb greenhouse gas emissions
Greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands were more than 6.5 percent lower in 2011 than in 2010. This was caused by a decrease in energy consumption of nearly 7 percent.
The SEEA EEA carbon account for the Netherlands
This document reports on the carbon account for the Netherlands, one of the thematic accounts of the SEEA EEA.
Dutch GHG footprint larger in 2017
Following a decline as of 2008, the GHG footprint of the Netherlands increased again, according to initial estimates.
Richer households cause more greenhouse gas emissions
The production of goods and services bought by households cause greenhouse gas emissions. On average a household in the Netherlands causes over 22 tons of CO2 equivalents in emissions.
Linking Microdata and analysis of enterprises in EU ETS
The registry at and monitoring of the ETS – companies by the Dutch Emissions Authority (NEa, Nederlandse Emissieautoriteit), are the starting point for linkage to the CBS data infrastructure in this...
Greenhouse gas emissions slightly down in 2017
In 2017, greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands were 1 percent lower than in the previous year.
Lower greenhouse gas emissions despite cold winter
Last year, greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands were nearly 1 percent below the level of 2011. The cold weather conditions in winter prompted consumers to use more natural gas for home...
Greenhouse gas emissions 9 percent lower in 2022
In 2022, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions were 9 percent lower than in 2021. This was mainly due to lower natural gas consumption in manufacturing, the built environment and agriculture

Greenhouse gas emissions slightly up in 2016
In 2016, greenhouse gas emissions were 1 percent up on 2015.
Energy consumption down in 2018
Energy consumption stood at 3,100 petajoules in 2018, around 50 petajoules less than one year earlier.
Dutch consumers do not contribute to worldwide emission reduction of greenhouse gases
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused to meet the economic needs of Dutch consumers were nearly 6 percent lower in 2009 than in 1996, but the total amount of global greenhouse gas emissions as a...
Greenhouse gas emissions 5 percent higher in 2015
Last year greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands were 5 percent up from 2014.
Greenhouse gas emissions higher than Kyoto figures suggest
According to the Kyoto Protocol, the emission of greenhouse gases was reduced by 4 percent over the period 1990-2007.
Greenhouse gas emissions down
Greenhouse gas emissions stood at 189.3 bn CO2 equivalents in 2018, 2 percent lower than in 2017 and 15 percent down on 1990.
Agricultural emissions lower than in 1995, no more decline in recent years
In 2021, most types of agricultural emissions were lower than in 1995, in spite of higher agricultural output. Reduction of greenhouse gas and nitrogen emissions has stagnated in recent years.
