Emissions of Spain: the carbon footprint of their society

As part of our Cartografía Carbono 2020 project, we have characterised the emissions of Spain. In this project we have focused on CO2 emissions on a personal scale linked to the lifestyle and consumption habits of the spanish society.

Providing information on individual emissions will allow citizens to understand which of their daily activities have the greatest impact on their carbon footprint, and what they can do to reduce their carbon footprint and be part of the fight against climate change.

How much are the emissions of an average Spaniard?


The average emissions of participants living in Spain are 5.5 tons CO2eq/year.

The range in which the carbon footprint of a person living in Spain is most frequently found is between 3 and 4 tonnes CO2/year, where about 19% of the participants are located.

In fact, only 25% of people are below 3.5 tonnes CO2/year. The 10% of the participants with the highest emissions are above 9.3 tonnes CO2/year, and they alone are responsible for about 25% of the total emissions.
