CO2 emissions by sector distributed over the population
The annual per capita CO2 emissions of all sectors combined are currently around 9.6 tons CO2 equivalents*
in Germany, which is about twice as high as the international average of 4.8 tons per capita**
For the sectors in Germany, the average CO2 emissions for 2018, distributed over the population, are
approximately: (tons CO2 equivalents)
Industry: 2.16, traffic: 1.95, households: 1.06, commerce: 0.44 and public buildings: 0.04 - 0.07***.
The average values for the municipalities of the Rhine-Neckar district and Heidelberg distributed over the population for the years 2010 to 2017 are shown on the following map.
