Statistics Netherlands (CBS) has switched to a new classification of emission sources. This table contains annual figures on emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants to the air in the Netherlands. The table shows the factual emissions on or above Dutch territory and the Dutch part of the Continental Shelf (NCP). This concerns the emissions expressed in kilograms of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4) and the emissions of a number of air pollutants, namely sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), ammonia (NH3), volatile organic compounds with the exception of methane (NMVOC), carbon monoxide (CO) and particulate matter PM2.5 and PM10 (particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 and 10 micrometres respectively). The emissions are broken down into stationary and mobile sources. The calculation of emissions from stationary sources is based on, among other things, the emission statements in the annual environmental reports of individual companies and production and energy data of Statistics Netherlands. Emissions from mobile sources have been calculated by multiplying activity data, such as vehicle kilometres and fuel consumption, with associated emission factors.

Data available from: 1990. Due to insufficient data quality, the years 1991 to 1994 and 1996 to 1999 are not shown.

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. This table is the successor to the tables:

  • Emissions to air on Dutch territory; totals, 1990-2021.
  • Emissions to air on Dutch territory; stationary sources
  • Emissions to air on Dutch territory; mobile sources

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