  1. Global CO2 emissions: annual increase halves in 2008

    The very high oil prices until the summer of 2008 together with a worldwide financial crisis that started to affect activities in society worldwide, in particular in the second half of 2008, have...

  2. Trends in global CO2 emissions: 2016 Report

    In 2015, after three years of slow growth, the growth of global CO 2 emissions from fossil-fuel use and from steel and cement production was brought to a standstill. One of the main causes was...

  3. Trends in global CO2 emissions: 2015 report

    After a decade of annual increases of 4%, on average, and two years (2012 and 2013) of slowing down to about 1%, the growth in global CO 2 emissions almost stalled, increasing by only 0.5% in...

  4. Global CO2 emissions: increase continued in 2007
