Short report for EU-15 and EU-27

Abstract
This technical paper contains EU-wide early estimates of greenhouse gas emissions for 2009 based on publicly available verified EU ETS emissions for 2009 and published activity data, as of mid-July, at both national and European level disaggregated by major source categories in sectors reported under the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol. The 2009 estimates revealed a stark 6.9% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to 2008 in both the EU-15 and the EU-27.
