Summary of release of greenhouse gasses from the Icelandic economy. The accounting is done according to sector division by Eurostat, which in turn is based on the NACE sector system (same as ISAT2008). The emissions are calculated using the methodology of IPPC, which is based on material and energy consumption. Data for the report was collected from industrial partners as well as data on import and export.
