Emissions Database for Global Atmospheric Research



Developed by the European Commission, the Emissions Database for Global Atmospheric Research (EDGAR) tracks greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel and biogenic (i.e. natural) sources, by country and industry. The database includes carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and various fluorinated gases (F-gases).

Example topics covered:

  • Emissions by country

  • Emissions by industry using Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) industry groupings

  • Emissions by fossil fuel or biogenic sources

As with all Public Domain datasets, Cybersyn aims to release data on Snowflake Marketplace as soon as the underlying source releases new data. We check periodically for changes to the underlying source and, upon detecting a change, propagate the data to Snowflake Marketplace immediately. See our release process for more details.


The Emissions Database for Global Atmospheric Research provides emission timeseries from 1970 for greenhouse gases across countries.

The EUROPEAN_COMMISSION_EDGAR_ATTRIBUTES table details each emissions variable tracked by greenhouse gas type and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) industry. The IPCC is the United Nations body focused on the science related to climate change.

The EUROPEAN_COMMISSION_EDGAR_TIMESERIES table provides historical values on a monthly or annual basis for each tracked variable.

EAV Model: All Cybersyn products follow the EAV (entity, attributes, value) model with a unified schema. Entities are tangible objects (e.g. geography, company) that Cybersyn provides data on. All timeseries' dates and values that refer to the entity are included in a timeseries table. Descriptors of the timeseries are included in an attributes table. Data is joinable across all Cybersyn products that have a GEO_ID. Refer to Cybersyn Concepts for more details.
