Portugal with biggest drop in CO2 emission in the EU

Portugal had the biggest reduction in CO2 emissions in the European Union (-9%) in 2018, more than triple the European average of -2.6%, Eurostat said.

Bulgaria came in second in reducing carbon dioxide emissions (-8.1%), followed by Ireland (-6.8%), Germany (-5.4%), Holland (-4.6%) and Croatia (-4.3%).

The CO2 emissions went up in other countries, particularly Latvia (8.5%), Malta (6.7%) and Luxembourg (3.7%).

Carbon dioxide represents about 60% of all the greenhouse gases emitted in the EU.
