Carbon dioxide emissions in Denmark 2000-2018

Carbon Dioxide emissions in Denmark from 2000 to 2018 (in million metric tons of CO2)

by Ian Tiseo, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Carbon dioxide emissions in Denmark 2000-2018 The levels of carbon dioxide emissions have been declining over the last two decades in Denmark. From a peak of 62 million metric tons of CO2 in 2003, emissions fell to just 35.7 tons by 2018. Whilst a slight increase from the previous year, this is significantly lower than the emissions from other countries in Europe, especially Germany where emissions reached 725.7 million metric tons in the same year.
Clean energy pioneer

Denmark is known as a leader in clean, renewable energy and is expected to reach the 50 percent renewable target by 2030. Wind power alone covered 41 percent of the country’s energy consumption in 2018. In the same year, there were 6,263 active wind power turbines in Denmark.

Decline in air pollution deaths

  With the overall decrease in CO2 emissions and the increase in renewables, it is not a coincidence that the number of deaths attributable to air pollution in Denmark has fallen noticeably since 1990. Although deaths dropped by an estimated 1,000 during this period, there was a slight increase in 2017 when compared to the previous year.
