Australia Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1990-2022

Total greenhouse gas emissions in kt of CO2 equivalent are composed of CO2 totals excluding short-cycle biomass burning (such as agricultural waste burning and Savannah burning) but including other biomass burning (such as forest fires, post-burn decay, peat fires and decay of drained peatlands), all anthropogenic CH4 sources, N2O sources and F-gases (HFCs, PFCs and SF6).
  • Australia greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2019 was 585,979.98, a 5.09% decline from 2018.
  • Australia greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2018 was 617,390.01, a 0.94% decline from 2017.
  • Australia greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2017 was 623,270.02, a 8.5% increase from 2016.
  • Australia greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2016 was 574,450.01, a 3.77% decline from 2015.
