The Solomon Islands, with a population of 669,823 and an urban population of 162,164, accounting for 0.242% of the total, has produced 317,925 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emissions of 0.449 tons, indicating that each person generates less than half a ton of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is crucial to examine the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of the Solomon Islands, the Carbon Intensity is 0.223 kg of CO2 per International dollar of economic output produced.
This figure is lower than both the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg), suggesting that the Solomon Islands’ economic activity has a relatively lower impact on CO2 emissions.
