Greenhouse gas emissions non-ETS

In 2016, the non-ETS sectors greenhouse gas emissions (not covered by the European Unionʹs emissions trading system: housing, transport, services, agriculture, etc.) in Belgium amounted to 74.5 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent. To achieve the sustainable development goal by 2030, that figure must be reduced to 51.0 million tonnes. The Federal Planning Bureauʹs projections indicate that this objective will not be reached. Non-ETS greenhouse gas emissions are therefore developing unfavourably.
