Norway, with a population of 5,347,896 and an urban population of 4,418,218, accounting for 82.62% of the total, has a GDP of $403,336,363,636. In 2022, the country produced 40,918,553 tons of CO2, resulting in a per capita emission of 7.57 tons.
This means that, on average, each person generates approximately 7.57 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. For Norway, this measure stands at 0.10 kg of CO2 per dollar, which is significantly lower than both the USA (0.30 kg) and China (0.57 kg).
This indicates that Norway’s economic output produces fewer CO2 emissions per unit of GDP compared to these countries.
Norway Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Norway?
In 2022, Norway’s total CO2 emissions amounted to 40,918,553 metric tons. The primary sources of these emissions were coal and oil, accounting for 4,177,600 and 21,477,984 metric tons respectively.
Gas emissions followed closely behind with 12,672,833 metric tons, while cement and flaring contributed 701,255 and 1,518,860 metric tons respectively.
These figures underscore the significant role of coal and oil in Norway’s economy and their substantial impact on CO2 emissions.
Furthermore, it is important to note the relationship between these emissions and Norway’s GDP, which further emphasizes the need for sustainable practices and alternative energy sources.
