According to data collected by Bloomberg from Carbon Monitor, China was one of the few countries in 2020 to still have a positive increase in carbon emissions with a growth of around half a percent. Other areas, like the U.S., EU and India, still retained significant reductions in emissions over the year between 7 and 12 percent. As a whole, global emissions dropped roughly 4 percent in 2020.
