Global GHG emissions can be roughly traced back to four broad categories: energy, agriculture, industry, and waste. Overwhelmingly, almost three-quarters of GHG emissions come from our energy consumption.

Global GHG Emissions Share by Sector
Energy Use - 73.2%
Agriculture, Forestry & Land Use - 18.4%
Industrial processes - 5.2%
Waste - 3.2%
