This Week’s Emissions: South Australia
The Greenhouse Indicator provides accurate and real time information on the amount of greenhouse gases produced each week in South Australia from energy use.
This accounts for around 90% of South Australia's emissions from energy and about 65% of the State's total greenhouse gas emissions. Remaining emissions come from agriculture, waste and industrial processes.
Greenhouse gas emissions in South Australia not included by the Indicator are estimated to be on average 195,000 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 for gas have been revised. This increase in coverage has led to a rise in emissions recorded from gas this year in South Australia of 18.9%.
