Emissions - Sector

What is Mt CO₂-e? Emissions are a combination of gases. Most are Carbon Dioxide (CO₂). The other gases are measured as a Carbon Dioxide equivalent (CO₂-e) based on the amount of heat they trap in the atmosphere. They’re measured in Million Tonnes (Mt).

Emissions by Sector

Explainer

When countries report their emissions, they're divided into sectors. Here are some key terms:

  • Fugitive emissions are released during gas, oil and coal production.
  • Industrial processes mean chemical, metal and mineral production, as well as fridges and air-conditioners.
  • Stationary energy means burning fuel for energy (e.g. gas, coal) in settings other than transport, such as power plants or buildings.
