Canada reduced CO2 emissions

CO2 emissions, in Canada in 2020, have fallen 52.603 megatons, 8.84% compared to 2019.

CO2 emissions in 2020 were 542.787 megatons, making Canada is among the ten most polluting countries en lo que respecta a emisiones de dióxido de carbono delin terms of carbon dioxide emissions 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 Canada, have decreased in 2020, in which they have been 14.43 tons per inhabitant.

Canada belongs to the group of countries that emit the most CO2 per inhabitant.

If you look at evolution 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, Canada, has emitted 0.31 kilos for every $ 1,000 of GDP, a lower figure than in 2019.

In the table we can see the evolution of CO2 emissions, which have decreased in the last ten years, as have per capita emissions and as well as CO2 emissions per $ 1,000 of GDP.

Total carbon dioxide emissions have also decreased compared to 2015, although per capita emissions have increased in this period.
