Air Emissions - Nitrogen Oxides

Ireland’s national emission reduction commitment for NOx for 2020 under the NECD was a 49 per cent reduction compared to a 2005 baseline level. Article 4 (3) of Directive (EU) 2016/2284 states that emissions from manure management and agricultural soils are not accounted for the purpose of compliance assessment. On that basis emissions have reduced by 53.8 per cent in the period 2005-2021 and therefore Ireland remains in compliance with the emission reduction commitment for 2020  Ireland has an emission reduction commitment of 69% for 2030 compared to 2005 levels. Further information can be found in Ireland’s Air Pollutant Emissions 1990-2030 report.
