Israel, with a population of 9,053,300 and an urban population of 8,374,393, accounting for 92.50% of the total, has produced 54,528,532 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emissions of 6.13 tons, indicating that each person generates approximately 6 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of Israel, the Carbon Intensity is 0.14 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
This value is lower than that of both the USA (0.30 kg) and China (0.57 kg), suggesting that Israel’s economic activity has a relatively lower carbon footprint.
Israel Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Israel?
In 2022, Israel’s total carbon dioxide emissions amounted to 54,528,532 metric tons. The primary contributors to these emissions were coal and gas, accounting for 14,043,493 and 19,448,837 metric tons respectively.
Cement made a smaller contribution of 1,424,515 metric tons, while flaring accounted for 1,184 metric tons.
Notably, oil was a significant source of emissions, totaling 19,610,503 metric tons.
These figures underscore the importance of coal, gas, and oil in Israel’s economy and their correlation with CO2 emissions.
