Bhutan is one of the world's most environmentally conscious countries.
Another fascinating Bhutan fact: it is the only country in the world that is carbon-negative, which means it absorbs more greenhouse gases than it emits. According to its own statistics, this nation of approximately 750,000 people removes roughly three times as much CO2 as it creates. Bhutan's natural forests contribute to the country's ability to be a net carbon sink. Forests cover more than 72% of the country. The rugged terrain is characterised by high altitude mountains and beautiful canyons and valleys. View my Bhutan photographs. Bhutan's relative underdevelopment – most people work in agriculture or forestry — means it emits less than 2.5 million tonnes of CO2 per year. Luxembourg,
