On 28 June 2023, the European Commission adopted the annual emission allocations for Member States for 2023, 2024, and 2025. This sets the maximum level of greenhouse gas emissions that each Member State can generate per year in the sectors covered by the European Union’s Effort Sharing legislation.
The legislation enables Member States to share the effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in key sectors: domestic transport, buildings, agriculture, small industry, and waste. These sectors are responsible for around 60% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the EU. The remaining emissions are covered by the EU Emission Trading System.
