Iceland has a long term visions of containing reductions of net emission of greenhouse gases by 50% to 75% until the year 2050, using 1990 figures as a baseline.

Due to electricity and heat being virtually CO2-free, Icelandic GHG emissions come predominantly from transport and from industrial process emissions. The sharp rises in emissions are due to the addition of new aluminium smelters.
