Dear EEA,

I am writing a Social Media post for my political party, where we want to focus on the harmful effects of transport, particulary cars, on humans, nature and climate. For that, we first want to make the point that whereas in some areas, emissions were reduced, in transport, this is failing. For that, I found a very illuminating post on the German website of the European Parlament (https://www.europarl.europa[…]ahlen-und-fakten-infografik), which has the following graphics:[…]/20190321PHT32163_original.jpg

I would love to use the image, and since the source is the EEA, apparently, I searched for this image on your website with the "Search"-button, but was unsuccesful. Therefore, I have the following questions:

1.) Does the image have Creative Commons Licens, i.e. can I use the image freely?
2.) Where may I find the image on the EEA websites?

Many thanks in advance!

Stay healthy,

Dear M. Imahn,

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

We were able to locate a similar graph that was developed by the EEA and that is available at[…]/evolution-of-ghg-emissions-in-2#tab-chart_1 . The source for this chart is available at[…]gas-monitoring-mechanism-16 .

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:

We hope that this may be useful for you.

With kind regards,
