  1. Understanding the contribution of non-carbon dioxide gases in deep mitigation scenarios

    In 2010, the combined emissions of methane (CH 4 ), nitrous oxide (N 2 O) and the fluorinated gasses (F-gas) accounted for 20–30% of Kyoto emissions and about 30% of radiative forcing. Current...

  2. Impact of car sharing on mobility and CO2 emissions

    Many people are used to occasionally sharing their car with friends or family. Car sharing via an organisation that brings together supply and demand and takes care of insurances and payments,...

  3. Enhanced policy scenarios for major emitting countries

    This study provides an overview of projected greenhouse gas emissions of 13 major emitting countries up to 2030, taking into account the emission trajectories based on current and planned policies...

  4. Sectoral CO2 emissions in the Netherlands up to 2010. Update of the Reference Projection for Policy-making on Indicative Targets

    This ECN/RIVM-report presents the future sectoral emissions, including industry and energy supply. The results have been used to set indicative targets for sectoral CO 2 emissions. The results...

  5. GLOBIO-Aquatic, a global model of human impact on the biodiversity of inland aquatic ecosystems

    Biodiversity in freshwater ecosystems is undergoing rapid global decline. Major drivers are land use change, eutrophication, hydrological disturbance, climate change, overexploitation and invasive...

  6. Reference projections for greenhouse gases in the Netherlands: emission projections for 2001 - 2010

    Results are presented of the project 'reference projection for energy and greenhouse gases' carried out by RIVM and ECN for the Ministries of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment...

  7. Inclusive Green Growth

    Designing effective policies for Inclusive Green Growth, or growth that improves the welfare of current and future generations, is difficult. Current growth pathways are often non-green and non-...

  8. Learning by doing - government participation in an energetic society

    The essay ‘Learning by doing’ is a follow-up of ‘The Energetic Society’, a report published in 2011 by PBL Netherlands Envi­ronmental Assessment Agency. The essay raised the following question...

  9. The potential contribution of a nitrogen emission control area to national targets under a revised EU national emission ceiling directive

    A proposal by the European Commission, containing national targets for 2030 for air polluting emissions from land-based sources, allows for a restricted contribution of new emission reductions in...

  10. Alternative Policy Study: Environment and energy in Europe and Central Asia 1990-2010. Energy-related environmental impacts of policy scenarios GEO-2000 alternative policy study

    The GEO-2000 study into alternative policy options for Europe and Central Asia focuses on energy use as an important driver for environmental problems across the region. The problems analyzed are...
