Slovakia, a country with a population of 5,454,073 and an urban population of 2,930,419, accounting for approximately 53.73% of the total, has produced a total of 35,308,218 tons of CO2 in 2022.
This translates to a per capita CO2 emission of 6.48 tons, indicating that each individual generates around 6.5 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is valuable to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of Slovakia, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 0.33 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
This figure is lower than that of China (0.57 kg) but higher than that of the USA (0.3 kg).
It highlights the amount of CO2 emissions associated with each unit of economic output in the country.
These statistics shed light on Slovakia’s CO2 emissions, emphasizing the need for sustainable practices to mitigate environmental impact and promote a greener future.
Slovakia Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Slovakia?
In 2022, Slovakia’s total CO2 emissions reached 35,308,218 metric tons. The primary contributors to these emissions were coal and gas, accounting for 12,579,047 and 10,394,417 metric tons respectively.
Cement and flaring made smaller contributions, with 1,443,145 and 13,168 metric tons respectively.
Notably, oil also played a significant role, contributing 10,094,408 metric tons.
These figures highlight the correlation between CO2 emissions and Slovakia’s GDP, emphasizing the importance of addressing emissions from coal, gas, and oil in order to mitigate environmental impact.
