Share of greenhouse gas emissions of Latin America and the Caribbean, 2005

Data on carbon dioxide emissions makes it possible to identify the main emitting countries within Latin America and the Caribbean. Chief among the emitters is Brazil, accounting for 52%, which together with Mexico, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and Argentina accounted for 79% of the total greenhouse gas emissions of the region in 2005. While specific percentages (excluding emissions associated with land use changes) vary, these four countries continue to be the region’s biggest emitters and in 2005 they accounted for 75% of the region’s greenhouse gas emissions.
