The state and territory emissions profile outlines details of the highest emitting industries for each state and territory in 2019–20.

Graph showing the highest emitting industries by state.
Highest emitting industries by state.

In 2019–20, electricity generation remained the highest emitting industry in Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. Manufacturing was again the highest emitting industry in Tasmania. Oil and gas production continued to be the highest emitting industry in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Industry groupings in this profile are based on the ANZSIC subdivisions.

Emissions included in this spotlight

The National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) scheme is a single national framework for corporations to report greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption and production. This covers about 60% of Australia’s total emissions. Emissions from the agricultural, forestry, private vehicle transport and residential sectors are not collected under the NGER scheme and therefore not included in this data.
