The European Community (EC), as a party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), reports annually on greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories within the area covered by its Member States. This year the scope of the report has been extended to the new Member States due to the enlargement of the EC.

The legal basis of the compilation of the EC inventory is Council Decision No 280/2004/EC concerning a mechanism for monitoring Community greenhouse gas emissions and for implementing the Kyoto Protocol (1). The purpose of this decision is to: (1) monitor all anthropogenic GHG emissions covered by the Kyoto Protocol in the Member States; (2) evaluate progress towards meeting GHG reduction commitments under the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol; (3) implement the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol as regards national programmes, greenhouse gas inventories, national systems and registries of the Community and its Member States, and the relevant procedures under the Kyoto Protocol; (4) ensure the timeliness, completeness, accuracy, consistency, comparability and transparency of reporting by the Community and its Member States to the UNFCCC Secretariat.
