This Week’s Emissions: Queensland

The Greenhouse Indicator provides accurate and real time information on greenhouse gases produced each week in Queensland from energy use.

The weekly Indicator accounts for about 80% of Queensland's total energy emissions and 45% of the State's total greenhouse gas emissions. Remaining emissions come from agriculture, land use, waste, industrial processes, electricity generated on-site by industry and fugitive emissions from coal mining.

 Greenhouse gas emissions in Queensland not included by the Indicator are estimated to be on average 1.9 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 2009 and 2010 emissions  figures from gas have been revised. This increase in coverage has led to a rise in emissions recorded from gas in Queensland of 7.8% for 2009, and 48.7% for 2010 to date.

Please see the methodology for more details.
