Malta registers largest drop in carbon emissions across EU

With a decrease of 18.2%, Malta in 2016 registered the largest drop in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions across the European Union, Eurostat data has shown.

Other countries to mark significant decreases include Bulgaria (-7%), Portugal (-5.7%) and the United Kingdom (-4.8%).

However, taking the EU as a whole, it is estimated that CO2 decreased only by 0.4% in 2016 when compared to the previous year. This is due to the fact that, according to Eurostat estimates, CO2 emissions rose in 2016 in a majority of EU member states. The highest increase was recorded in Finland (+8.5%), followed by Cyprus (+7%), Slovenia (+5.8%) and Denmark (+5.7%).
