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.
In the latest Quarterly Update, Australia's annual emissions for the year to March 2014 (excluding emissions from land use, land use change and forestry) are estimated to be 541.9 Mt CO2-e.
Over the year to March 2014, there was a decline in emissions from electricity (section 2.1), reflecting lower electricity demand and changes in the generation mix. Emissions from industrial processes (section 2.5) and agriculture (section 2.6) also declined over the year. These declines were partially offset by increases in fugitive emissions (section 2.4) and the stationary energy excluding electricity (section 2.2) sector.
