The Briefing 'Trends and drivers in greenhouse gas emissions in the EU in 2016', shows that the emission decrease in 2016 was mainly due to using less coal to produce heat and electricity. Greenhouse gas emissions from road transport increased for the third year in a row.

The EEA's 'Annual European Union greenhouse gas inventory 1990-2016 and inventory report 2018' shows a 0.4 % decrease in the total EU greenhouse gas emissions in 2016, compared with 2015. From 1990 to 2016, the EU has reduced its net greenhouse gas emissions by 22.4 %, surpassing its 20 % reduction target by 2020.

Almost all European countries have conducted national climate change vulnerability and risk assessments as part of their adaptation plans to better deal with the impacts of climate-related hazards, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) report.

This report introduces several methods the European Environment Agency (EEA) has developed for assessing and communicating early RES growth and the important knock-on effects that RES growth has on the energy sector and related areas.

This report of the European Environment Agency (EEA) provides a summary of the volume and the quality of petrol and diesel sold in 2016 for use in road transport in the European Union (EU), based on the information
reported in 2017 by EU Member States under the European Fuel Quality Directive 98/70/EC (FQD).

All car and van manufacturers met their carbon dioxide (CO2) specific emission targets in 2016, based on current European vehicle test rules, but they will need to continue their efforts to meet future agreed-to cuts.

This report outlines the progress renewable energy sources (RES) made in 2015 in the European Union (EU) as a whole, and at country, market sector and technology level. It also provides early European Environment Agency (EEA) estimates regarding developments at all of these levels in 2016.

The 2017 edition of the European Environment Agency (EEA) report on fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases) confirms the good progress achieved in 2016 by the European Union (EU) in phasing down the use of

This 2017 report of the European Environment Agency (EEA) provides an analysis of past, present and future emissions trends under the European Union (EU) Emissions Trading System (ETS), based on the latest data and information available from the European Commission (July 2017 data on verified emissions and compliance by operators under the EU ET

Building stronger links between climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction experts is more important than ever in wake of recent devastating and extreme weather events across Europe and elsewhere.
