In recognition of the fundamental importance of energy related environmental issues, the latest information on CO2 emissions from fuel combustion – level, growth, source and geographic distribution – will be essential to analysts and policy makers in many international fora. To provide input to and in support of the UN Conference of Parties, which met in Bonn, Germany, from 7 to 16 November 2017, the IEA made available for free download the “Highlights” version of its CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion publication.
This annual publication contains graphs and tables for World and the main regional aggregates and, for 150 countries and regions:
- estimates of CO2 emissions from 1971 to 2015
- selected indicators such as CO2/GDP, CO2/capita and CO2/TPES
- a decomposition of CO2 emissions into driving factors
Emissions were calculated using IEA energy databases and the default methods and emission factors from the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories.
