CO2 Equivalent means :
CO2 Equivalent is the concentration of CO2 that would cause the same amount of radiative forcing as the given mixture of CO2 and other greenhouse gases. Carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2 eq) provide a universal standard of measurement against which the impacts of releasing (or avoiding the release of) different greenhouse gases can be evaluated.
