Lebanon, with a population of 6,855,713 and an urban population of 6,084,994, accounting for 0.887580037262353 of the total, has produced 24,958,901 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emission of 4.462819 tons, indicating that each individual generates approximately 4.5 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of Lebanon’s economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is essential to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In this regard, Lebanon’s carbon intensity is measured at 0.467683797666545 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
Comparatively, this value is lower than that of China (0.57 kg) but higher than the USA (0.3 kg).
These figures highlight the significant contribution of Lebanon’s population to CO2 emissions and emphasize the importance of implementing measures to reduce carbon footprints and promote sustainable practices.
