Energy-related CO2 emissions by country
--- Historical emissions trends and indicators ---- The data for 2012 need to be seen in a longer term perspective. Since 1900, emissions levels and their geographical distribution have changed sig... nificantly, with the first decade of this century seeing the accumulation in the atmosphere of eleven times more CO2 than the first decade of the previous century. Excluding international bunkers, OECD countries accounted for almost all of the global emissions in the 1900s, yet now non-OECD emissions account for 60%. OECD countries emitted 40% of global energy-related CO2 emissions in 2012, down from 55% in 2000 (Figure 1.11). This compares with around 40% of total primary energy demand and 53% of global GDP (in purchasing power parity terms). The growth in China's emissions since 2000 is larger than the total level of emissions in 2012 of the other BRICS (Brasil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) countries combined. India's emissions increased in 2012, reinforcing its position as the world's third-largest emitter. Developing countries tend to be net exporters of products whose production gives rise to CO2 emissions, opening up scope for debate as whether responsibility for the emissions lies with the producer or the importer. --- Sources: IEA databases and analysis, Boden et al., (2013).
