Dear EEA, I'm looking for the person in charge of the data SDG 13_10 and t2020_30, GhG emissions basis 1990. The context is that we are finalising a financial innovation to accelerate private climate investments with ICHEC business school in Brussels, where I'm lecturer in Innovative and Sustainable Finance. We would like to integrate the t2020_30 into our pricing models but we need to better understand (1) the methodology (2) the break in time series (3) the legal and IT way to automate data integration into our pricing tool and (4) the way to link SDG13_10 / t2020_30 with the National trends and projection having the same perimeter (both ESD and ETS sectors). Can you help me? Thank you! Best regards. Alex

Dear Alex,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

We would suggest that you refer to the IPCC guidelines as it is the methodological reference for this indicator. Please see:[…]/V1_4_Ch4_MethodChoice.pdf . You may also consult the UNFCCC reporting guidelines for national GHG inventories as this explains how countries should report, using the methods contained in the 2006 IPCC Guidelines. Please see:[…]/10a03.pdf#page=2 .

For time series, the requirement of which years to report and time series consistency is also included in the UNFCCC reporting Guidelines. The methods for achieving this consistency are set in the 2006 IPCC. Please see:[…]/V1_5_Ch5_Timeseries.pdf .

As regards the legal and IT way to automate data integration into your tool, we do not have the capacity to guide you on the IT side but we refer you to our copyright policy for data usage, which stipulates that EEA reports, graphs and data can be re-used and reproduced for both non-commercial and commercial purposes under the following condition:

The source (EEA) should be clearly acknowledged. Content used may not be altered without the explicit permission of the EEA. However, the use of excerpts of reports is permissible, as long as it is made clear what is EEA material and what is not.

Please see the legal notice page on our website at the following link:

Projections are consistent with GHG inventories in terms of scope so you might be interested to consult our projections dataset at[…]/greenhouse-gas-emission-projections-for-6 .

We hope that this may be useful for you. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get back to us.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
