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.
Australia's annual emissions for the financial year 2013-2014 (excluding emissions from land use, land use change and forestry) are estimated to be 542.6 Mt CO2-e.
National emissions levels increased by 0.4 per cent in trend terms for the June quarter 2014.
Annual emissions for the 2013-14 financial year (excluding the land sector) decreased 1.4 per cent compared to the previous financial year.
Over 2013-14, there was a decline in emissions from electricity (section 2.1), reflecting lower electricity demand and changes in the generation mix. Emissions from transport (section 2.3), industrial processes (section 2.5) and agriculture (section 2.6) also declined over the year. These declines were partially offset by increases in the fugitive emissions (section 2.4) and stationary energy (excluding electricity) (section 2.2) sectors.
