CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

Luxembourg failed to achieve its 28% GHG emission reduction target under the Kyoto Protocol as GHG emissions in 2012 were 8% below their level in 1990. In 2017, GHG emissions were 9% below their 1990 level at 11.9 MtCO2eq (+3% compared to 2016).

CO2 emissions from fuel combustion decreased by 20% between 2010 and 2016. They rebounded subsequently by 5% to 9 MtCO2 in 2018.
