In 2020-21, electricity generation remained the highest emitting industry in Queensland, Victoria, 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. Oil and gas production became the highest emitting industry in South Australia, which was electricity production in 2019-20.
Industry groupings in this profile are based on the ANZSIC subdivisions.
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.
