Apenas 57 empresas emitem 80% das emissões de CO2

By Phil Bainbridge

April 4, 2024 - Apenas 57 empresas estatais e anónimas são responsáveis por
80% das emissões mundiais de anidrido carbónico desde que
foi assinado o Acordo Climático de Paris em 2016.

Studies by the Carbon Majors Database show that 122 of the world’s largest oil, gas, coal and cement producers have been responsible for 72% of global fossil fuel and cement carbon dioxide emissions since the Industrial Revolution.

Since the Paris Climate Agreement was adopted, the 117 entities still in existence have emitted 251 Gigatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent, over 88% of total emissions in that time, with 80% of that produced by just 57 state-controlled and private sector organisations.
