Armenia, with a population of 2,957,731 and an urban population of 1,869,848, accounting for 63.22% of the total, has produced 6,806,045 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emission of 2.44 tons, indicating that each person generates approximately 2.44 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In Armenia, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.50 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output, which is lower than both the USA (0.30 kg) and China (0.57 kg).
This indicates that Armenia’s economic activity has a relatively lower carbon footprint compared to these countries.
Overall, Armenia’s CO2 emissions, per capita and in terms of GDP, reflect a conscious effort to minimize environmental impact while maintaining economic growth.
Armenia Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Armenia?
In 2022, Armenia’s total CO2 emissions reached 6,806,045 metric tons. The primary sources of these emissions were coal, accounting for 12,484 metric tons, and gas, with 5,460,901 metric tons.
Cement contributed 341,102 metric tons, while flaring had no emissions.
Oil accounted for 991,559 metric tons.
These figures highlight the significant role of coal and gas in Armenia’s carbon footprint.
Furthermore, the correlation between these emissions and the country’s GDP underscores the need for sustainable development strategies to mitigate environmental impact.
