The majority of the CO2 produced will be with participants, fans and media representatives travelling to the event. Around a quarter of the total would be produced by running the event, and a fifth would be generated by accommodation.
3.6 million tonnes would represent a greater than 50% increase over the 2.1 million tonnes produced at the 2018 World Cup hosted by Russia.
The figure would represent an output greater than that produced by any of the amounts Democratic Republic of Congo, Iceland and Montenegro give out over the course of a year.
