Climate

Climate change is considered to be one of the greatest challenges facing mankind. It is believed to be caused by greenhouse gas emissions from human activities. Climate change can be mitigated by ecosystems, such as forests, water bodies and bogs that absorb carbon dioxide emitted into the air.

Climate statistics provide an overview of greenhouse gas emissions in Estonia. The data help us see what precisely causes greenhouse gas emissions. 

Climate statistics provide information on

  • greenhouse gas emissions per GDP and per capita;
  • greenhouse gas emissions from the energy sector;
  • emissions of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide;
  • how much carbon dioxide is bound by ecosystems.

Data on greenhouse gas emissions help to predict climate change and implement national adaptation measures.
