Northern Ireland greenhouse gas inventory: 1990 to 2015


This statistical bulletin presents the latest estimates of greenhouse gas emissions for Northern Ireland. The estimates are expressed in terms of global warming potentials defined on a 100-year horizon. The estimates and the global warming potentials are consistent with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change reporting guidelines and based on the latest UK Greenhouse Gas Inventory. Each year the greenhouse gas inventory is extended and updated. The whole historical data series is revised to incorporate methodological improvements and new data. The previous version becomes redundant and cannot be used for comparison purposes.
