Greenhouse gas emissions from transport

The Transport sector shows the emissions for all forms of transport. However, emissions from international aviation and navigation are not allocated to the Transport sector, as they are shown separately.

The largest shares of emissions in the Transport sector come from passenger transport (cars, motorbikes, coaches), followed by freight transport (trucks and delivery vans). The other forms of transport (rail, boats/ships, buses, pipeline transport, military including military flights, fuel tourism and statistical differences) and national aviation (civil flights) contribute less to Transport sector emissions. In line with the guidelines of the UN Climate Convention, emissions from international aviation and navigation are not included in the national total emissions or in the Transport sector shown here. Emissions from construction and industrial machinery are allocated to the Industry sector. Emissions from agricultural and forestry vehicles and machinery are allocated to the Agriculture sector.

Emissions from international aviation are shown on the following page:

Evolution of greenhouse gas emissions in the Transport sector, broken down into the categories passenger transport (cars, motorbikes, coaches), freight vehicles (trucks and delivery vans), other transport (rail, boats/ships, buses, pipeline transport, military including military flights, fuel tourism and statistical differences) and national aviation (civil flights).
Evolution of shares in greenhouse gas emissions in the Transport sector from diesel, gasoline, kerosene (national aviation only, civil and military flights) and gas.
