However, the experts warned, «while measures have been implemented, still much to be done in this regard, as they will require long-term strategies with an overview linking scientific research with public policy».
Last March, the National Institute of ecology and climate change (Inecc) announced that the growth rate of greenhouse gas emissions decreases to slow pace in Mexico, with an average of 0.8% increase between 2010 and 2015.

The national inventory of emissions of Gases effect greenhouse 2015 showed that, while emissions continue growing, the rate of increase from 1990 to 2015 was 1.7%, so there is a slight improvement. According to the presented study, a total of 683 million tonnes of greenhouse gases, of which the main transmitter turns out to be transport, 171 million tons, 25% were dumped in 2015. Energy industries constitute the second major source of emission with 165 million tons, a 24.1%, followed by the third largest emitter, the manufacturing and construction industries, which shed 64 million tonnes into the atmosphere, 9.3%.
