State and territory emissions profile 2017–18

Suggested Reading Suggested Reading

28 February 2019

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

The state and territory emissions profile outlines details of the highest emitting industries for each state and territory in 2017–18.

Industry groupings in this profile are based on the ANZSIC subdivisions.
