CO₂

The share of CO2 in fireworks (professional firework displays and New Year’s Eve consumer fireworks) is significantly small, only about one millionth of the CO2 emissions in Germany: the share of CO2 from fireworks calculated by the VPI is 1,150 tons. Calculated on the total CO2 emissions in Germany of 805,000,000 t, this results in a share of 0.00013%. According to the Federal Environment Agency (UBA), these numbers are valid and the emissions of minor importance. Fireworks are therefore not a relevant CO2 polluter.
