Ireland Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1990-2022

Total greenhouse gas emissions in kt of CO2 equivalent are composed of CO2 totals excluding short-cycle biomass burning (such as agricultural waste burning and Savannah burning) but including other biomass burning (such as forest fires, post-burn decay, peat fires and decay of drained peatlands), all anthropogenic CH4 sources, N2O sources and F-gases (HFCs, PFCs and SF6).
  • Ireland greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2019 was 61,480.00, a 3.49% decline from 2018.
  • Ireland greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2018 was 63,700.00, a 2.73% decline from 2017.
  • Ireland greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2017 was 65,490.00, a 0.77% decline from 2016.
  • Ireland greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2016 was 66,000.00, a 4.05% increase from 2015.
