Access to National Inventory Report (NIR) and Common Reporting Format (CRF) data for Ireland

The quality of greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories relies on the integrity of the methodologies used, the completeness of reporting, and the procedures for compilation of data. To this end, the Conference of the Parties (COP) has developed standardized requirements for reporting national inventories. On this page we have provided direct access to Ireland's annual inventory submissions consisting of the national inventory report (NIR) and common reporting format (CRF) data files. The NIRs contain detailed descriptive and numerical information and the CRF tables contain all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals, implied emission factors and activity data.

Under the UNFCCC reporting guidelines on annual inventories for Annex I Parties, inventory submissions are in two parts:

  • Common reporting format (CRF) tables – a series of standardized data tables containing mainly quantitative information;
  • National Inventory Report (NIR) – a report containing transparent and detailed information on the inventory. It should include descriptions of the methodologies used in the estimations (including references and sources of information), the data sources, the institutional arrangements for the preparation of the inventory (including quality assurance and control procedures), and recalculations and changes compared with the previous inventory.

The files are provided in two computer file-based formats.
NIR documents are provided in Portable Document Format (PDF) while CRF files are provided in Microsoft Excel format. To provide easier access to the CRF (which are a collection of inventory data files for each submission year) each submission year's files are collected into a single ZIP file for download. Most computers, laptops, tablets and smart-devices will already have software installed which is capable of opening and viewing both the NIR and the CRF files.
