Liechtenstein's greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 to 2016

April 16, 2018

Annual greenhouse gas emissions in Liechtenstein fell by 18 percent between 1990 and 2016 – despite the population expanding by around 30 percent over the same period. The primary reasons for this decline in emissions include structural transformation in the economy, more energy-efficient buildings, vehicles and industry, and a sharp drop in fuel-related emissions because fewer and fewer people are crossing the border to fill up their cars at lower prices. As a member of the UN Climate Convention, Liechtenstein is obliged to submit an annual report of its greenhouse gas emission levels. INFRAS was commissioned by the Liechtenstein Office of Environment to act as lead author of this report.


Liechtenstein's greenhouse gas emissions fell by 18 percent between 1990 and 2016. The difference was around five percent compared with 2015.
