Ukraine, with a population of 44,385,155 and an urban population of 30,835,699, accounting for 69.47% of the total, has produced 201,857,716 tons of CO2 in 2022. This translates to a per capita CO2 emissions of 4.64 tons, indicating that each individual generates approximately 4.64 tons of CO2 annually.
To assess the impact of economic activity on CO2 emissions, it is crucial to consider the Carbon Intensity of GDP. In the case of Ukraine, the Carbon Intensity of GDP is 1.31 kg of CO2 per International dollar ($USD) of economic output produced.
This figure is higher than that of the USA (0.3 kg) and China (0.57 kg), suggesting that Ukraine’s economic activity has a relatively higher carbon footprint.
These statistics highlight the significant contribution of Ukraine’s population to CO2 emissions, with a relatively high per capita emissions rate and carbon intensity of GDP. It emphasizes the importance of implementing sustainable practices to mitigate the environmental impact and promote a greener future.
Ukraine Total CO2 emissions by source
How much do coal, oil, gas, cement and flaring contribute to CO2 emissions in Ukraine?
In 2022, Ukraine’s total CO2 emissions reached 201,857,716 metric tons. The primary contributors to these emissions were coal, accounting for 101,829,705 metric tons, and gas, with 54,076,202 metric tons.
