Indonesia, a country with a population of 270,203,917 and an urban population of 151,509,724, accounting for approximately 56.07% of the total, has a GDP of $1,119,190,780,753. In 2022, Indonesia produced 619,277,533 tons of CO2, resulting in a per capita emission of 2.26 tons.
This indicates that each individual contributes an average of 2.26 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is crucial to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of Indonesia, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.55 kg of CO2 per dollar, which is lower than that of China (0.57 kg) but higher than that of the USA (0.30 kg).
This metric measures the amount of CO2 emitted in kilograms per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
These figures highlight Indonesia’s significant CO2 emissions and the need for measures to mitigate environmental impact. Efforts to reduce carbon intensity and promote sustainable practices can play a crucial role in addressing climate change challenges and fostering a greener future.
