В.3. Greenhouse gas emissions

Indicator:

B3 – Greenhouse gas emissions

download the file in Excel format for 1990–2019

Brief description:

Greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) are presented by ingredients (carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane, sulphur hexafluoride) and by sectors (energy; industrial processes and product use; agriculture; waste; land use, land-use change and forestry);
GHGs are estimated per capita, per unit area and per unit of GDP by PPP.
