Croatia's commitment is -5% relative to 1990 emission levels by 2020. The calculated reduction is rated Inadequate.
Croatia's Kyoto Protocol (2008-2012) target is -5% relative to base year (1990) and is equal to their proposal for 2020.
Croatia’s inscription in Appendix 1 to the Copenhagen Accord states that its target is temporary, pending accession to the European Union, whereupon Croatia’s target would be “… replaced by arrangement in line with and part of the European Union mitigation effort.” (see the EU27 page for further information)
In May 2012, Croatia submitted a provisional QELRO level range of 80 for the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol, aligning itself with Denmark and the European Commission. This means that Croatia’s average yearly emissions during the period of 2013-2020 are proposed to be 80% of 1990 levels.

UNFCCC (2009) Report of the Review of the Initial report of Croatia
Targets for 2020 were calculated from the most recent national inventory submissions (2012).
We calculated Croatia's LULUCF accounting quantities for 2020 for afforestation, reforestation and deforestation using the current Kyoto rules and for forest management using a net-net approach with a reference level based on 1990 levels.
