Italian carbon dioxide emissions 2008-2018

Carbon Dioxide emissions in Italy from 2008 to 2018 (in million tons of CO2)

by Statista Research Department, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Italian carbon dioxide emissions 2008-2018 In Italy, carbon dioxide emissions decreased from roughly 474 million tons in 2000 to 344 million tons in 2017. A glance at the graph reveals that the level of CO2 emissions peaked in 2005, before decreasing quite steadily until 2014, when it reached an all-time low of 325.9 million tons. In the following three years, a slight increase of CO2 emissions occurred, yet not remarkable if compared to the standards of the previous years.
 Mainly polluting sectors

The energy industry is mainly responsible for greenhouse gas emissions, especially CO2 emissions. Notwithstanding, the level of emissions coming from electricity and heat production and from the industry sector in general, decreased remarkably over time. The same cannot be said for the transport sector, the other main source of carbon dioxide emissions.    

Factors leading to CO2 emission decline

The level of CO2 emissions is quite low compared with other European countries. The general decrease of the last twenty years may be attributed to virtuous policies implementing the deployment of renewable sources and a more efficient use of energy. In addition, it can be assumed that the economic crisis and the consequent decline of industrial production played a relevant role as well in the reduction of CO2 emissions.
