Despite optimistic forecasts: 3.5 percent increase in greenhouse gas emissions in Israel last year

Despite optimistic forecasts: 3.5 percent increase in greenhouse gas emissions in Israel last year

This is the highest figure of greenhouse gas emissions in the country since 2012 – at a whopping 81.1 million tonnes of CO2e. This further distances Israel from meeting its international commitment to reduce emissions by 27% by 2030. Minister Silman: "There is still a lot of work to be done, we will continue to act more vigorously."

News summary

A 3.5 percent increase in greenhouse gas emissions into the air in Israel in 2022, according to last year's environmental emissions register of the 572 largest factories in Israel published today by the Ministry of Environmental Protection. This is the highest figure of greenhouse gas emissions in Israel since 2012, at 81.1 million tons of CO2e – contrary to forecasts that no increase was expected.

The surprising figure is even 1% higher than in 2015, the reference year of the Paris Agreements. It also further distances Israel from meeting its international commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 27% by 2030 – compared to the 2015 reference year. The ministry says the figures underscore the urgent need for reduction commitments enshrined in primary legislation with the climate law, which will enable the promotion of government-wide national programs and economic tools such as carbon taxation, the introduction of renewable energies and vehicle electrification.

The main source of increases in greenhouse gases are fuel consumption in transportation (an 11% increase in diesel fuel for transportation, a 4.5% increase in gasoline); consumption of refrigerant gases (7%); Power plant consumption (2%) resulting from a 3.7% increase in electricity production that led to a moderate increase in gas consumption for electricity production – because the rate of increase in renewable energies was small.
