About the data

The State and Territory Greenhouse Gas Inventories 2019 provide an overview of the latest available estimates of greenhouse gas emissions for Australia’s states and territories. Estimates are calculated on a United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) accounting basis.

We present state and territory emission estimates on this page by these common metrics:

  • Emissions per capita – the amount of emissions emitted per person
  • Emissions per gross state or domestic product – the amount of emissions per unit of gross product

We calculate these metrics using population and gross state/domestic product data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
