This Week’s Emissions: New South Wales
The Greenhouse Indicator provides accurate and real time information on greenhouse gases produced each week in New South Wales from energy use.
The weekly Indicator accounts for around 90% of NSW's total energy emissions and 65% of the State's total greenhouse gas emissions. Remaining emissions come from agriculture, land use, waste, industrial processes and fugitive emissions from coal mining.
Greenhouse gas emissions in NSW not included by the Indicator are estimated to be on average 1.1 million tonnes per week.
Please note: A review of both the Indicator’s methodology and the data released by the Gas Bulletin Board means that the 2010 emissions figures from gas have been revised. This increase in coverage has led to a rise in emissions recorded from gas this year in New South Wales of 18.5%.
Please see the methodology for more details.
