Croatia, with a population of 4,067,500 and an urban population of 2,328,318, accounting for 57.24% of the total, has produced 17,701,451 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emissions of 4.36 tons, indicating that each person generates approximately 4 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of Croatia, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.29 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
This figure is lower than both the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg), suggesting that Croatia’s economic activity has a relatively lower impact on CO2 emissions compared to these countries.
Overall, these statistics highlight the significant contribution of Croatia’s population to CO2 emissions, with a relatively high per capita emissions rate. However, the country’s Carbon Intensity of GDP indicates a relatively more efficient use of economic output in terms of CO2 emissions compared to the USA and China.
Croatia Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Croatia?
In 2022, Croatia’s total CO2 emissions reached 17,701,451 metric tons. The primary sources of these emissions were coal, accounting for 1,685,619 metric tons, and gas, with 5,310,927 metric tons.
These figures highlight the significant contributions of coal and gas to Croatia’s carbon footprint.
Additionally, cement contributed 1,212,949 metric tons, while flaring accounted for 288,184 metric tons.
Notably, oil was the largest contributor, with emissions totaling 9,050,490 metric tons.
These emissions are closely correlated with Croatia’s GDP, reflecting the importance of these industries in the economy and their impact on CO2 emissions.
