Supplementary notes

MtCO2e - million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (this method weights emissions by global warming potential)

The end-user calculation reallocates source (i.e. energy supply) emissions to the end user, thus the figures represent emissions from the whole chain rather than just direct emissions.
