Russia, with a population of 144,373,535 and an urban population of 107,683,889, accounting for approximately 74.59% of the total, has a GDP of $1,699,876,578,871. In 2022, the country produced 1,755,547,390 tons of CO2, resulting in a per capita CO2 emissions of 12.10 tons.
This means that, on average, each person in Russia generates over 12 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 Russia, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 1.03 kg of CO2 per dollar, which is higher than both the USA (0.30 kg) and China (0.57 kg).
This indicates that Russia’s economic output produces a higher amount of CO2 emissions per dollar compared to these countries.
These figures highlight the significant contribution of Russia to global CO2 emissions, both in terms of total emissions and per capita emissions. It underscores the importance of implementing measures to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainable practices in order to mitigate the environmental impact of economic activities in the country.
Russia Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Russia?
In 2022, Russia’s total carbon dioxide emissions reached a staggering 1,755,547,390 metric tons. Among the primary sources, coal accounted for 380,227,147 metric tons, while gas contributed 875,051,751 metric tons.
These figures highlight the significant role of coal and gas in Russia’s emissions profile.
Additionally, cement production resulted in 21,920,821 metric tons of emissions, while flaring contributed 58,921,786 metric tons.
Notably, oil was responsible for 403,080,393 metric tons of emissions.
These emissions reflect the correlation between Russia’s GDP and its carbon footprint, emphasizing the need for sustainable practices to mitigate environmental impact.
