CO2 emissions Brazil 2020

Lower CO2 emissions in Brazil

In Brazil, CO2 emissions during 2020 have fallen 25.179 megatons, 5.28% compared to 2019.

CO2 emissions in 2020 were 451.801 megatons, making Brazil is among the countries that pollute the most in the ranking of countries for CO2 emissions, made up of 184 countries, in which the countries are ranked from least to most pollutant.

In addition to its total emissions of CO2 into the atmospher, which logically depend, among other variables, on the country's population, it is convenient to analyze the behavior of its emissions per inhabitant. In the table we see that per capita CO2 emissions in Brazil, have decreased in 2020, in which they have been 2.11 tons per inhabitant.

Finally, it is interesting to observe the behavior f CO2 emissions per 1000 dollars of GDP, which measures, for the same country, the "environmental efficiency" with which it is produced over time. In the last period, Brazil, has emitted 0.15 kilos for every $ 1,000 of GDP, the same as in 2019.

In the table we can see the evolution of CO2 emissions, which have grown since 2010, while per capita emissions have decreased and, on the contrary, CO2 emissions per $ 1,000 of GDP.

However, in the last five years, total emissions have decreased in Brazil, as have emissions per capita, then the situation is improving.
