Case study: Country inventory (Denmark)

Sadie S

The agriculture sector in Denmark contributes 21% of the country’s overall GHG emissions, excluding LULUCF. Denmark’s agriculture emissions are dominated by the livestock sector, primarily due to the production of dairy and non-dairy cattle and swine. Methane (CH4) is the largest contributor to the overall agricultural emissions, accounting for 54% of the sector’s CO2-equivalents in 2015. This case study describes the countries approach for cattle and swine.
