Key highlights for the 2015–16 reporting year include:

  • Overall, scope 1 emissions of 334 million tonnes (carbon dioxide equivalence) has increased on adjusted 2014–15 levels by 2.2 percent (data from 2014–15 has been adjusted to reflect updated global warming potential values, which affect the carbon dioxide equivalence of greenhouse gases).
  • Emissions from the electricity sector remains the largest contributor to total emissions, accounting for more than half (54.3 percent) of all reported scope one emissions. This is due to an overall increase in black and brown coal-fired electricity generation, and accounts for 0.9 per cent of the overall 2.2 per cent increase.
  • The mining and manufacturing sectors also accounted for a further 20.3 percent and 17.4 percent of reported scope 1 emissions respectively. The rise in the manufacturing sector of 1.4 per cent of the overall 2.2 per cent increase, is due to liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing, with large-scale plants either commencing or increasing operations in 2015–16.

It is important to note that information published as part of the 2015–16 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting dataset cannot be directly compared to publications from previous years for a number of reasons, including the introduction of updated global warming potential values in 2015–16, which affect the carbon dioxide equivalence of greenhouse gases.
