This indicator shows greenhouse gas emissions in the Nordic region, in tonnes of CO2 equivalents per capita.The indicator covers emissions and removals of direct Greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3), but also includes indirect CO2 emissions. Each gas is weighted according to the global warming factors (GWP) which results in the comparable measure CO2 equivalents. Data is available for Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. For more information on Nordic Statistics:
