On 6 October 2010, the International Energy Agency released for free download the 2008 numbers for over 140 countries/regions/economies.[1]

The list of countries below is arranged by their ratio of gross domestic product, nominal and by purchasing power parity, to carbon dioxide emissions. GDP data is for the year 2006 produced by the International Monetary Fund. Carbon dioxide emissions data is for 2006, provided by the CDIAC for United Nations (see List of countries by carbon dioxide emissions).

The countries at the top of the list are the most efficient. They produce the most economic output with the least emissions. Countries at the bottom of the list produce the most emissions per unit of economic output.
