Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a list of countries by total greenhouse gas (GHG) annual emissions in 2016, 2017 and 2018. It is based on data for carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, perfluorocarbon, hydrofluorocarbon, and sulfur hexafluoride emissions compiled by the World Resources Institute.[1]‹See TfM›[failed verification] The table below separately provides emissions data calculated on the basis of production, respectively consumption of goods and services in each country. The data does not include emissions from land-use, land-use change and forestry. The unit used is megatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (MtCO2e). All countries which are party to the Paris Agreement report their greenhouse gas inventories at least biennially from 2024.[2]
