CO2 emissions per inhabitant in the EU and in developing countries

Tonnes
The indicator compares the level of CO2 emissions per inhabitant in the EU with levels in developing countries, in tonnes per inhabitant. For EU Member States: this indicator is compiled using the data on CO2 emissions (sector 1-7 excluding sector 5 - land use change and forestry) provided in the official submission of the European Commission to the UNFCCC; and per capita emissions are calculated using Eurostat population statistics. For developing countries: this indicator is compiled using fuel combustion related CO2 emissions published by the IEA and per capita emissions are calculated population statistics published by the IEA. Developing countries are here identified with the 'developing countries and territories' on the OECD Development Assistance Committee List of Aid Recipients; for which CO2 emission data are available.
