Carbon Majors: historic data from the world’s largest oil, gas, coal, and cement producers.

Today is Wednesday, April 10 2024.

Carbon Majors Report was launched this April 2024 by InfluenceMap. The starting point is a database of cumulative historical emissions from 1854 through 2022. 122 of the world’s largest oil, gas, coal, and cement producers are covered.

As you will see, production is clustered in three types: investor-owned companies, state-owned companies, and nation-states.

This means two things, at least:

  • the comparatives mixes countries with companies; and

  • economically, the demand perspective of oil, gas, coal, and cement is not presented, just the offer side.

We say that as there are other perspectives, like the 10 finance firms that "own half of all future carbon emissions", like already reported. In that post, researches from Canada’s University of Waterloo analysed the so-called "Carbon Underground 200". Recall.

Back to the Carbon Majors Report, it reveals that 70% of fossil fuel and cement CO2 emissions since the Industrial Revolution can be traced to 78 entities. And there are several other interesting conclusions at the report.

Last but not least, here some other posts from Carbon Credit Markets that might be of interest:
