Abstract or Table of Contents

The transport sector is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in Austria with about 27% of total emissions in the year 2009, second only to the sector of industrial processes that takes a share of 28%. Most important, the transport sector exhibits by far the largest increase in GHG emissions since the year 1990 with a rise of more than 54%. GHG emissions in the sector industry have expanded only by about 6% since 1990, all other sectors such as energy production, room heating and other small-scale uses, agriculture, waste, etc., tend to a reduction in GHG emissions, some of them quite substantially (e.g. -21.8% from 1990 levels for room heating and other small-scale uses).
