Report on the situation of CO 2 emissions in the world. Year 2020

New report of the series with studies of global, European and Spanish emissions. The most recent data published officially in the different international organizations following the working methodology of the previous studies are presented. In this edition, the data shown correspond to the years 2019 from the general perspective and 2020 from the perspective of emissions subject to the European Directive. For the emission auctions, the data for 2020 and 2021 are presented.

The relevant note of this report is the analysis of Directive emissions in the context of COVID-19, where a significant decrease in emissions is intuited, which can largely be attributed to the decline in economic activity in 2020.

As usual, the global emissions presented in the document are those published by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and correspond to energy emissions from fossil fuels by countries and geographical areas. Other production emissions, such as the cement or lime industry, as well as emissions from landfill combustion and emissions from digestive processes in animals and crop degradation, are out of reach.

The data of the auctions and market of the emission permits have been collected until the end of 2021, being the most recent published information of all. The official source is the European Energy Exchange AG (EEX) in all countries except the United Kingdom whose official source is located on the Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (ICE).

Following our methodology, for the data of the total emissions of Europe and Spain, the time series published in the European Environment Agency (EEA) and in the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge have been used. As for European and Spanish emissions that are subject to the Directive, the data have been taken from the most recent publications made by the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS).

As an auxiliary data support, in order to complete the analysis, the databases of the National Institute of Statistics (INE) and the European Statistical Office have also been used.
Staging (Eurostat).

As always, remind the reader of the fact that the official methodology for accounting for emissions in Europe and Spain focuses on the imputation of emissions at the place of origin,
without taking into account the imputation of emissions at the place of use of the products or services produced.

Also thank the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge and the Spanish Office for Climate Change for their invaluable help. Lastly, we would like to extend our thanks to companies such as Global Omnium, Fundación Bancaria La Caixa, EPSON and Eldu, without whom it would not have been possible for another year to give birth to this new report.
