Breakdown by country (kCO2/$2015p)

World

80%

Russia's CO2 intensity was 80% above the world's average in 2017.

Slowdown in global CO2 intensity reduction (-1.3%) to its historical trend (-1.5%/year over 1990-2017)

CO2 intensity (CO2 emissions per unit of GDP) has fallen in all regions since 1990, except in the Middle East, but high intensities are still recorded in fossil-fuel rich countries. In 2017, the CO2 intensity continued to increase in Russia despite the average 2.2%/year drop since 1990, and in the Middle-East (Saudi Arabia, Iran).
The CO2 intensity improved in large emitting countries such as China (CO2 intensity divided by 3 since 1990), India, and the United States. In the European Union – the lowest CO2 intensity worldwide – it remained stable, as higher emissions in France and Germany offset improvements in the United Kingdom.
