Air pollution, emissions of mobile sources
Road traffic, inland shipping, railways, aviation, navigation, machinery.
In 2019, greenhouse gas emissions declined by 3 percent (5.7 megatonnes) to 182.5 megatonnes of CO2 equivalents year-on-year.
Greenhouse gas emissions stood at 189.3 bn CO2 equivalents in 2018, 2 percent lower than in 2017 and 15 percent down on 1990.
Hoe heeft de uitstoot van broeikasgassen zich ontwikkeld in 2018 t.o.v. de klimaatdoelstellingen?...
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 Dutch economy is declining.
In 2017, greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands were 1 percent lower than in the previous year.
Climate change mitigation expenditure by central government increased from 900 million euros in 2007 to more than 1.1 billion euros in 2015.
Gaseous fuel of natural origin mainly consisting of methane.
A mixture of gases derived as by-product from the distillation of crude oil and the processing of oil...
Volatile organic substances excluding methane. Forming smog and sometimes carcinogenic.
The Dutch aviation sector was responsible for almost 13 billion kg in CO2 emissions.
Dutch greenhouse gas emissions fell by 13 percent
Last year greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands were 5 percent up from 2014.
Energy consumption in the first eight months of 2009 was down by more than 4 percent on the same period in 2008. This has led to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.
Greenhouse gas emissions caused by Dutch transport companies have increased by nearly 80 percent since 1990. This is largely due to the increase in international transport by Dutch companies and a growing appetite for travelling among the Dutch.
In 2007, greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands were reduced for the third consecutive year. The total emission volume amounted to 205 billion kg of CO2 equivalents, i.e. 4 percent below the level of 1990, the base year of the Kyoto Protocol.
