NATIONAL GREENHOUSE GAS INVENTORY IN 2005
SUMMARY the basic idea
Australia’s net greenhouse gas emissions across all sectors
totalled 559.1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (Mt CO2-e)
in 2005 under the accounting provisions applying to Australia’s 108% emissions target.
Emissions were 102.2% of 1990 levels in 2005.
Based on International Energy Agency and Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change estimates,
Australia’s share of world emissions was 1½ per cent in 2005
The greenhouse gas emissions intensity of the Australian economy, expressed as emissions per dollar of GDP, has declined over the period 1990 to 2005 by 36.7% from 1.0 to 0.7 kg CO2-e.
Australia has reduced its emissions per capita over the period 1990 to 2005 by 14.4% from 32.3 to 27.6 tonnes CO2-e. Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions by sector in 2005.
