Greenhouse Gas Inventory Database

Welcome to the Environmental Protection Agency of Ireland's Greenhouse Gas (GHG) database. From this resource you can access a rich volume of information on Ireland's national GHG emissions.

The Reporting Guidelines on Annual Inventories adopted by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), describe the scope and reporting of greenhouse gas emission inventories by Parties included in Annex I to the Convention. The guidelines set out the methodologies and procedures to be followed for submitting consistent and comparable data on an annual basis in a timely, efficient and transparent manner to meet the needs of the Convention. The UNFCCC Guidelines require that Parties prepare a National Inventory Report (NIR) as one of the key components of their annual submissions. The purpose of the NIR is to describe the input data, methodologies, background information and the entire process of inventory compilation for greenhouse gases and to give details of any recalculations of historical inventories. It is needed to assess the transparency, completeness and overall quality of the inventories as part of the rigorous ongoing review of submissions from Annex I Parties.
