It's a bit of a round-about question as there is no carbon dioxide released during the actual process itself.

However, a catalyst allows the equilibrium to be reached in a shorter time than without a catalyst meaning that less energy has to be expended, which saves fossil fuels that have probably been burned in a power station, reducing carbon dioxide.

Daft question if you ask me ...
