Trends in Global CO2 emissions: 2016 report

This report presents the results of a trend assessment of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from fossil fuel and cement up to 2015, and updates last year’s assessment. This assessment focuses on the changes in annual CO2 emissions from 2014 to 2015, and includes not only fossil-fuel combustion on which the BP (2016) reports are based, but also incorporates other relevant CO2 emissions sources, including flaring of waste gas during gas and oil production, cement clinker production and other limestone uses, feedstock and other non-energy uses of fuels, and several other small sources. The report clarifies the CO2 emission sources covered, and describes the methodology and data sources.
