    That depends on which time frame you’re looking at and whether LULUCF (land use, land-use change and forestry) in included. The latter is often hard to estimate, so let’s look at figures without it. Based on UN data on carbon emissions from 1990-2007, Latvia leads with a 54.7% reduction, followed by Ukraine at 52.9%, and another ten countries out of the former Soviet block. Data from Energy Information Administration of the US DOE on 1992-2007 emissions includes fewer nations. Latvia’s not in the list, so Ukraine gets the first place with -33.8%.
