Guyana Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1970-2021

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).
  • Guyana greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2012 was 6,140.69, a 1.62% increase from 2011.
  • Guyana greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2011 was 6,042.58, a 1.77% increase from 2010.
  • Guyana greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2010 was 5,937.29, a 76.95% decline from 2009.
  • Guyana greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2009 was 25,763.69, a 403.9% increase from 2008.
