Australia’s National Greenhouse Accounts are made up of a series of comprehensive reports and databases that estimate, and account for, Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. These publications fulfil Australia’s international and domestic inventory reporting requirements. The Quarterly Update of Australia’s National Greenhouse Gas Inventory reports on the latest estimates of Australia’s national greenhouse gas inventory.
Emissions increased in the December quarter 2011, with trend emissions rising by 0.3% and seasonally adjusted and weather normalised emissions increasing 0.1% (Figures 1-3). This is the fourth consecutive quarter of positive trend growth.The trend increase for the quarter was largely driven byincreases in emissions from fugitive emissions as a result of increased mining of black coal (see section 2.4). This increase was partially offset by decreases in emissions from the electricity (see section 2.1) and industrial processes (see section 2.5) sectors.
