CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions
GHG emissions dropped by 17% in 2020, reaching 35.4 MtCO2 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while they had previously decreased by 2.1%/year since 2014. Still, GHG emissions in 2020 stood at 13% above their 1990 level. Between 1990 and 2014, GHG emissions increased by almost 55%. GHG emissions are mainly composed of CO2 emissions from fuel combustion in Hong Kong, thus their levels are quite alike (35 MtCO2 in 2020), and vary similarly in time. In 2020, CO2 emissions from coal consumption accounted for 37% of total emissions from energy combustion.
