Carbon intensity: Carbon intensity is a measure of the amount of carbon emitted per unit of GDP. A low-carbon country manages its economy cleaner than a carbon-intensive country, either because of energy efficiency or a high proportion of renewable energy and/or nuclear energy in its energy mix. But a low-carbon country with a large economy could still emit more globally than a country with a high carbon intensity and a small economy. A single country`s carbon intensity can also decrease, while its overall emissions increase when their economic growth exceeds the reduction in emissions per unit of GDP. The climate law calls for a 49% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 compared to 1990 and a 95% reduction by 2050. . . .
