Azerbaijan, with a population of 10,023,318 and an urban population of 5,616,165, accounting for 56.03% of the total, has produced 38,492,804 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emissions of 3.73 tons, indicating that each person generates approximately 3.73 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of the country’s economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is essential to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In Azerbaijan, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.98 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
This value is higher than that of the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg), indicating that Azerbaijan’s economic activity has a relatively higher carbon footprint.
Overall, Azerbaijan’s CO2 emissions, both in total and per capita, contribute to the global carbon footprint. The country’s Carbon Intensity of GDP suggests that efforts to reduce emissions and promote sustainable practices in economic activities could be beneficial in mitigating environmental impact.
Azerbaijan Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Azerbaijan?
In 2022, Azerbaijan’s total CO2 emissions reached 38,492,804 metric tons. The primary sources of these emissions were coal, accounting for 3,664 metric tons, and gas, with 26,029,329 metric tons.
The correlation between these emissions and the country’s GDP highlights the significant role of the energy sector in Azerbaijan’s economy.
Additionally, cement contributed 1,096,472 metric tons, flaring contributed 252,822 metric tons, and oil contributed 11,110,517 metric tons to the overall emissions.
These figures underscore the importance of coal and gas in Azerbaijan’s carbon footprint and emphasize the need for sustainable energy solutions.
