Emissions of F-gases due to leaks from stationary equipment decreased in 2017 and 2018, namely by 9% and 20%, respectively, after increasing from 2014–2016. The decline is expected to continue in the future as a result of more intensive restrictions on placing F-gases on the EU market. The target value of the indicator from the Operational Programme for Reducing GHG Emissions until 2020 (OP GHG) is only indicative, as there have been several methodological changes since the adoption of the OP GHG. Improvements in the F-gas emissions inventory have shown that past emissions were underestimated during the preparation of the OP GHG, so exceeding the target does not necessarily indicate the non-implementation of measures. In addition, new legislation introducing new measures was adopted at the EU level in 2014.
