This report serves as the annual submission of the European Community (EC) to the UNFCCC. It presents the greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory of the EC, the EC GHG inventory process and methods and GHG inventory data of its individual Member States for 1990-2000. The GHG inventory data of the EC MS are the basis of the EC GHG inventory; they are provided in this report in order to make the data basis of the EC GHG inventory transparent. Each EC Member State is Party to the UNFCCC and provides its annual national submission to the UNFCCC secretariat separately. The data published in this report are also the basis of the progress evaluation report of the European Commission (due in October 2002), required under Council Decision 99/296/EC for a Monitoring Mechanism of Community CO2 and other Greenhouse Gas Emissions.
