Iran Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1970-2022

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).
  • Iran greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2018 was 828,280.00, a 1.66% increase from 2017.
  • Iran greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2017 was 814,730.00, a 2.36% increase from 2016.
  • Iran greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2016 was 795,970.00, a 1.2% increase from 2015.
