Ecuador, with a population of 17,373,662 and an urban population of 11,116,711, accounting for 63.99% of the total, has produced 41,321,734 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emissions of 2.32 tons, indicating that each person generates approximately 2.32 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is crucial to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of Ecuador, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.38 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
This value is lower than that of China (0.57 kg) but higher than that of the USA (0.3 kg).
These figures highlight Ecuador’s contribution to global CO2 emissions and emphasize the importance of implementing measures to reduce carbon intensity and promote sustainable economic growth.
Ecuador Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Ecuador?
In 2022, Ecuador’s total CO2 emissions reached 41,321,734 metric tons. The primary sources of these emissions were oil, accounting for 35,500,845 metric tons, and cement, contributing 2,472,370 metric tons.
The correlation between these emissions and GDP highlights the significant role of oil and cement in Ecuador’s economy and their impact on CO2 emissions.
