Press release: 12.338
Emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases reduced overall since 1995; emissions of climate-relevant CO2 and ammonia slightly rose
Both households and the economy show decreases in
most air emissions. Households reduced all observed air emissions and
greenhouse gases considerably – except for CO2
from other sources
For more detailed results and further information concerning statistics on air emissions and greenhouse gases please refer to our website.
Information on methods, definitions: These results were calculated by Statistics Austria considering only emissions caused by persons living in Austria as well as enterprises and institutions registered in Austria. In contrast to this, the Environment Agency Austria compiles – within the framework of international reporting obligations (UNFCCC, UNECE CLRTAP) – the Austrian Air Emission Inventory, where air emissions are reported that are caused in Austria, independently of the polluters' origin. Environment Agency Austria's Annual Air Emission Inventory also forms the basis for the Air Emission Accounts.
