The results showed that in both short and long run, with increasing one unit in energy consumption, carbon dioxide emissions will be increased equal to 0.002 units. So it is suggested development supports of renewable energy, particularly solar energy, wind and water in order to improve air quality and environmental indicators. Also according to the dummy variable of Rio conference and its significant with plus sign, this variable shows that in the long-run pattern, Iran has acted for protecting the environment.
