The total carbon dioxide - CO₂ - emission from the State of Kuwait is estimated to be
around 84 MT per year – this is equivalent to the CO₂ emission from 70,000 cars in
Kuwait!!. Additionally, this value locates the State of Kuwait in the rank of 47 – Globally.
Then, this article is published as we are response about such issue and to aware people
about such factors which can be controlled and minimize.
As per 2008 data, the total carbon dioxide - CO₂ - emission from Kuwait is calculated to
be around 76 MT. At the same time, the CO₂ gas emission is expected to reach 100 MT
by the year 2030 ( +30.3% ), which mean increasing by 1.4% per year. The following
trend shows the previous CO₂ emission from Kuwait, in addition to the forecasting one –
at the same rate,
From another hand, the total CO₂ emission from Kuwait is equivalent to almost 5.08% ,
3.7% and 0.24% of the total CO₂ emissions produced by the Arab World, Middle East
and the whole world– respectively.
Additionally, this high CO₂ emissions generated by the state of Kuwait is equivalent to
most of European manufacturing countries such as Switzerland and Denmark – in
Source of CO₂
As it is shown below, almost two third the total CO₂ emission is generated from the
Electricity and Heat, and Transport sectors. Thus, these two sectors are much critical in
term of minimizing the CO₂ emission

Finally, let us work together to minimize the CO₂ emission to have better life for our self
and the next generation, which can be achieved by the following:
1- Used the energy at the efficient.
2- Apply the Green building subject.
3- Used Technology (telecommunication, teleconference, …etc).
4- Alternative energy
