Cyprus, with a population of 1.2 million and an urban population of 800,708, accounting for approximately 66.8% of the total, has produced 7,600,422 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emission of 6.11 tons, indicating that each individual generates over 6 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is crucial to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of Cyprus, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.31 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output, which is lower than both the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg).
This suggests that Cyprus has a relatively lower carbon intensity in terms of economic productivity.
Cyprus Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Cyprus?
In 2022, Cyprus recorded a total of 7,600,422 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. The primary contributors to these emissions were coal, accounting for 201,473 metric tons, and oil, with 6,496,579 metric tons.
Gas emissions were relatively low, totaling 220 metric tons, while cement emissions reached 882,317 metric tons.
Notably, there were no emissions from flaring.
These figures underscore the significant role of coal and oil in Cyprus’ economy and their impact on CO2 emissions.
The connection between these emissions and GDP can be further explored to assess their environmental and economic implications.
