Though Nigeria is only the 10th largest producer of Co2 emissions from an average journey, they were found to have the longest average commute time, being just over an hour - 61.97 minutes!

Only 6 countries were found to produce less than 1,000 grams of Co2 emissions from a single journey - Austria, Hong Kong, Denmark, Japan, Finland, and the Czech Republic
