Turkey, with a population of 83.4 million and an urban population of 63.1 million, accounting for 75.63% of the total, has a GDP of $754,411,708,203. In 2022, Turkey produced 446,204,185 tons of CO2, resulting in a per capita emission of 5.26 tons.
This means that each person generates approximately 5.26 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is useful to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of Turkey, the Carbon Intensity is 0.59 kg of CO2 per dollar of economic output, which is higher than both the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg).
This indicates that Turkey’s economic activity has a relatively higher carbon footprint compared to these countries.
These figures highlight the significant contribution of Turkey to global CO2 emissions and emphasize the need for sustainable practices to mitigate environmental impact.
Turkey Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Turkey?
In 2022, Turkey’s total CO2 emissions reached 446,204,185 metric tons. The primary contributors to these emissions were coal, accounting for 162,562,331 metric tons, and oil, with 118,359,993 metric tons.
Gas emissions followed closely behind at 114,395,247 metric tons, while cement and flaring made smaller contributions at 44,394,708 metric tons and 195,236 metric tons, respectively.
These figures underscore the significant role of coal and oil in Turkey’s economy and their correlation with CO2 emissions.
