A new analysis on the biggest carbon emitters

A mere 57 oil, gas, coal and cement producers are directly linked to 80% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions since the 2016 Paris climate agreement, according to the Carbon Majors Database, which is compiled by world-renowned researchers. Today the database has now been updated and relaunched on a dedicated public access website, which is hosted by InfluenceMap.

It shows the public a striking comparison between the long-term emission data back to Industrial Revolution and the recent emission since the 2016 Paris agreement:

Since Paris Agreement, CO2e emissions linked to investor-owned coal production decreased by 28%, while CO2e emissions linked to state-owned companies' and nation-states' coal production increased by 29% and 19%, respectively. The top 10 is dominated by Chinese and Russian state entities and filled out with those from India and Iran. Western capitalism does not appear until the 11th placed ExxonMobil with 1.4%, half of its historical average.

“It is morally reprehensible for companies to continue expanding exploration and production of carbon fuels in the face of knowledge now for decades that their products are harmful!”

“This is a threat to civilisation!”

“If business as usual continues we won’t have a livable planet for our children and grandchildren. We must collect political, corporate and political will to avoid the worst threat that climate change poses. We can do this.”

        Indeed this is a threat to humanity.Worse of it all is that State owned co2 producers are not moved by agreements they are party to.Its sad.

          Companies should take responsibility of their actions and reduce their emissions or come up with ways of treating their waste before releasing it .

            These 57 big companies are the biggest menace we have and they need to slow down on operations and adopt to clean energy.

                Absolutely outrageous that only 57 companies are responsible for 80% of global emissions since the Paris Agreement! 😡 This is a HUGE problem, and these companies need to be held accountable for their actions.

                  It's time for companies and governments to prioritize sustainability and adopt policies that promote cleaner energy sources and reduce emissions.
