In "Austria's Annual Greenhouse Gas Inventory 1990–2017" the Umweltbundesamt presents updated figures of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Austria including the first five years of the second commitment period under the Kyoto-Protocol. In 2017 GHG emissions amounted to 82.3 million tonnes of CO2 equivalents. This corresponds to a 4.6% increase against 1990 and a 3.3% increase compared to 2016. Key drivers for the development 2016–2017 were the higher fossil fuel sales, in particular diesel, increasing emissions from road transport as well as the increased use of natural gas for power generation and higher steel production.
GHG emissions according to Article 2(1) of Decision No. 406/2009/EC (“Effort Sharing Decision”) amounted to 51.7 Mt CO2 equivalents in 2017 and were thus 2.1 Mt CO2 equivalents above the annual emission allocation for 2017. Content and format of this report are in accordance with the obligations under the GHG Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (EU) No. 525/2013.
