1Switzerland50% by 2030199053.3 Mt C02e100%Switzerland will realize its INDC mainly domestically and will partly use carbon credits from international mechanisms. Switzerland will use carbon credits from international mechanisms that deliver real, permanent, additional and verified mitigation outcomes and meet high environmental standards. Switzerland intends to use the CDM.The same IPCC methodology as used to account for forest management in the second commitment period under the Kyoto Protocol will be applied. 27/02/2015
2-29EU40% by 20301990Not specified in the INDC. 5370 MtCO2e in 1990, as specified in DG CLIMA's Staff Working Document (see: )100%No contribution from international credits.Policy on how to include Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry into the 2030 greenhouse gas mitigation framework will be established as soon as technical conditions allow and in any case before 2020.
30NorwayAt least 40% by 20301990About 52.0 Mt CO2e100%Yes, Norway participates in the EU ETS and for non-ETS sectors, Norway assumes access to flexibility in implementation in line with what EU member states have. In this situation, there will be no use of international market credits towards the target. Norway plans to use international credits only if it cannot secure a collective agreement with the EU. Norway does, however, support inclusion of market based mechanisms in the 2015 agreement, and the opportunity to continue using units accruing from the CDM and JI. In the case of a collective delivery with the EU and its member states, the final approach to accounting for emissions and removals in the land sector will be decided upon later, based on the dialogue with the EU. Norway will work towards a common framework for land sector accounting, for all Parties. In the event that Norway will implement the commitment individ.ually, its commitment will include emissions and removals in the land sector27/03/2015
31Mexico25% below BAU by 2030 (22% of GHG and a reduction of 51% of Black Carbon). Could rise to 40% subject to a global agreement addressing important topics such as carbon pricing, technical cooperation and access to financial resources and technology.BAUNot Specified 100%In order to achieve rapid and cost efficient mitigation, robust global market based mechanism will be essential.
Mexico´s unconditional INDC commitment will be met regardless of such mechanisms, although these would assist cost-effective implementation. Achieving the conditional 40% goal will require fully functional bilateral, regional and international market mechanisms.
Not Specified28/03/2015
32United States26-28% by 20252005Not Specified100%No. At this time, the United States does not intend to utilize international market mechanisms to implement its 2025 target.The United States intends to include all categories of emissions by sources and removals by
sinks, and all pools and gases, as reported in the Inventory of United States Greenhouse Gas
Emissions and Sinks; to account for the land sector using a net-net approach; and to use
a “production approach” to account for harvested wood products consistent with IPCC
33Russian Federation25-30% by 20301990Not Specified100%No, the Russian Federation does not intend to utilize international market mechanisms to implement its 2030 target.The INDC states that ‘limiting anthropgenic greenhouse gases in Russia to 70-75% of 1990 levels by the year 2030 might be a long-term indicator, subject to the maximum possible account of absorbing capacity of forests.’ This implies that land-use accounting and foresk sink absorbtion capacity will help the Russian Federation achieve its target.31/03/2015
34Gabon At least 50% by 2025 compared to reference scenarioBAUNot Specified Not Specified No use of international credits. A law on sustainable development is already in place that require the government to set up (date tbd) a national sustainable development fund.

The INDC excludes emissions from forest and biomass activities. 01/04/2015
35Liechtenstein40% by 20301990228.7 Kt CO2e100%In putting forward its commitment, Liechtenstein assumes to achieve emission reductions abroad which may be accounted towards its reduction target in 2030. However, primary focus will be given on domestic emission reductions.Not Specified23/04/2015

38Morocco32% by 2030 compared to BAU projections. 13% unconditionally, 19% conditionally. BAU9.4 Mt C02e100%Morocco considers the establishment of an international market mechanism vital to reduce the total costs to achieve the target of limiting the temperature increase to 2°C. Morocco does not exclude the possibility of using these mechanisms to achieve its conditional and/or unconditional targets.No REDD+ specifics, but 2030 goal includes afforestation goal of 50,000 ha per year.

39Ethiopia64% by 2030 compared to BAU projections.BAU150 Mt C02eUnknown.

It aims to increase the carbon stocks in landscapes while also sequestering significant amounts of C02 through forests. 10/06/2015
40Serbia9.80%1990Unknown100%Unknown in the INDC, but as a candidate for the EU it will have to comply with EU ETS regulations in the future upon being granted ascension into the EU. Furthermore, as a member of the European Energy Community, Serbia faces time-sensitive regulations to decarbonise its energy sector. Unknown30/06/2015
41Iceland40% by 203019903.5 MT C02e100%Yes, Iceland is a party to the EU-ETS, due to membership of the European Economic Area, and over 40% of Iceland‘s emissions fall under the trading scheme. It is foreseen that this will continue after 2020. For a small economy like Iceland access to markets is important, as it provides flexibility that bigger economies do not need to the same extent; a single project can contribute a high percentage of emissions in a small economy like Iceland‘s but hardly register in bigger economies.Iceland intends to include LULUCF in its post-2020 contribution to climate mitigation, in accordance with established and accepted methodology for LULUCF accounting. In particular Iceland intends to employ afforestation and revegetation to contribute to its goals. Iceland will also use wetland restoration as part of its climate efforts, and possibly other LULUCF activities.30/06/2015
42China60-65% carbon intensity reduction by 20302005Unknown100%According to its INDC, China is committed to steadily implement its national carbon market, building upon the existing ETS pilots to ensure that the market ‘plays the decisive role in resource allocation’.

international market mechanisms.
Singapore has begun a longterm programme to monitor and report carbon storage and carbon fluxes related to land use change and forestry. As there are no commercial forestry or plantations in Singapore, emissions or carbon storage from land use change and forestry are expected to be small.03/07/2015

Namibia does not rule out the use of international market-based mechanisms to achieve its 2030 target in accordance with agreed accounting rules.

The same carbon register will be used for emission offsets and trading
on the international market.
