In "Austria's Annual Greenhouse Gas Inventory 1990–2016" the Umweltbundesamt presents updated figures of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Austria. In 2016 GHG emissions amounted to 79.7 million tonnes of CO2 equivalents. This corresponds to a 1.3% increase against 1990 and a 1.0% increase compared to 2015. Key drivers for the increase of emissions in 2016 were the higher overall amount of fossil fuel sold in Austria and the higher use of natural gas for heating of households and commercial buildings.

GHG emissions according to Article 2(1) of Decision No. 406/2009/EC (“Effort Sharing Decision”) amounted to 50.6 Mt CO2 equivalents in 2016 and were thus 0.4 Mt CO2 equivalents below the annual emission allocation (AEA) for 2016. Content and format of this report are in accordance with the obligations under the GHG Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (EU) No. 525/2013.
