Each party listed in Annex B of the Kyoto Protocol has been assigned maximum amounts of emissions which the party concerned must not exceed during the first commitment period of 2008-2012. The assigned amounts are obtained by multiplying the emission amount of the base year by five (years) and by multiplying the thus obtained product with a coefficient given in Annex B, which expresses the limit set on the party's emissions as a percentage of its emissions in 1990. Assigned emission amounts are expressed as tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.
