National coverage

Dit is een dataset die landelijk dekkend is. De data heeft betrekking op heel Nederland.


This new table contains annual figures on the emissions of greenhouse gases into the air in the Netherlands. This concerns the emissions of total substances in CO2 equivalent and the emissions of the individual gases: carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), methane (CH4) and fluorinated gases (F-gases). The emissions are broken down by climate sectors, as used within the Dutch Climate Agreement, and underlying sectors. The greenhouse gas emissions to the 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 their consequences. The IPCC provides (scientific) guidance for the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol. For a complete overview, the air emissions of bunker fuels sold in the Netherlands for international aviation and international shipping are also included. These emissions are not covered by the IPCC directive. They do not count towards the greenhouse gas emissions that the Netherlands provides to the IPCC and are therefore not included in the total figure.

Data available from: 1990. Status of the figures: The figures from 1990 to 2022 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 23 February 2024: None, this is a new table. Statistics Netherlands (CBS) has switched to a new classification of emission sources and now also shows the emissions of F-gases. This table is the successor to the table Greenhouse gas emissions calculated according to IPCC, 1990-2021.

When will new figures be available? Provisional figures for 2023 will be published in September 2024.
