The data is from the latest report published by SEEG, with the support of iCS, which shows the characteristics of greenhouse gas emissions in Brazil in 2022 

The System of Estimates of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Removals (SEEG) has published its analysis of emissions and implications for the climate goals of Brazil (1970-2022). Last year, Brazil emitted 2.3 billion gross tons of greenhouse gases, which was an 8% drop in relation to 2021. However, it was the third largest emission in a 12-month period since 2005, behind only 2019 and 2021, both during the government of Jair Bolsonaro. The changes in land use, which include deforestation in all the Brazilian biomes, account for 48% of the total national emissions, followed by agriculture and livestock, with 27% of the gross emissions of the country.
