Last known data from the Philippines shows that two of the most contributing sectors to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are

the energy sector and the agriculture sector. Within the Philippines’ energy sector, transport and electricity generation

are the biggest emitters, followed by waste and industrial processes. 

Net Zero Target


Philippines has diverse energy sources used in TPES, whereby oil and traditional biomass are the main sources of fossil and non-fossil fuel types.

Oil is the main consumer of the TFEC followed by traditional biomass and electricity, which each type of energy source is in an increment trend since 2014, and hence the TFEC.

The Philippines commits to a projected GHG emissions reduction and avoidance of 75%, of which 2.71% is unconditional and 72.29% is conditional

  • period: 2020 to 2030
  • sectors: agriculture, wastes, industry, transport, and energy
  • projected BAU emission: 3,340.3 MtCO2e
  • GHGs covered: carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and hydrofluorocarbons (HFC)

INDC: The Philippines intends to undertake GHG (CO2e) emissions reduction of about 70% by 2030 relative to its BAU scenario of 2000-2030.

  • Conditional
  • Sectors: energy, transport, waste, forestry, and industry
