Greenhouse gas emissions of primary industries in New Zealand
By region, 2021, kilotonnes of CO2 equivalent
The following information applies to all values in the table.
Year: 2021, Industry: A,B, Grouping variable: Total, Category: Total, Measure: Greenhouse gas emissions, Gas type: Carbon dioxide equivalents
These statistics are presented on a residency, rather than territory, basis meaning regional estimates may include those from residents undertaking activities in other regions. Regional estimates are based on the production approach to measuring emissions.
Indirect emissions, such as from purchased electricity, are excluded.
Regional greenhouse gas emissions statistics include regional emissions by industry, households, and emissions intensity (emissions in relation to regional GDP). It is based on consistent classifications and concepts used in economic statistics.
Method of collection/Data provider
Region-level estimates are compiled using a top-down approach in order to maintain national consistency. These are estimated at a fine degree of industry detail and aggregated for confidentiality purposes. However, several data sources used are based on unit record data. For each detailed industry, the top-down approach assumes each region has the same emissions intensity. Where practicable, estimates account for differences in technology across regions
