Carbon dioxide equivalent is a standardised unit of measurement to indicate the global warming potential (GWP) of other greenhouse gases, expressed in terms of the GWP of one unit of carbon dioxide.

CO2-e is used to measure releasing (or avoiding releasing) different greenhouse gases against a common standard.

CO2-e is also written CO2e, CO2e or CO2eq, all meaning the same thing.

It is generally expressed in MtCO2-e, the equivalent of one metric tonne of carbon dioxide.
