Greenhouse gas emissions from energy use in New Zealand

By source, 1990–2014, millions of tonnes of CO2 equivalent

Definitions

Emission is the discharge of pollutants into the atmosphere from stationary sources such as smokestacks, other vents, surface areas of commercial or industrial facilities and mobile sources, for example, motor vehicles, locomotives and aircraft.

Data calculation/treatment

This dataset presents trends in man-made emissions of major greenhouse gases and emissions by gas.
Data refer to total emissions of CO2 (emissions from energy use and industrial processes, e.g. cement production), CH4 (methane emissions from solid waste, livestock, mining of hard coal and lignite, rice paddies, agriculture and leaks from natural gas pipelines), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6).
The GDP used to calculate intensities is expressed in USD at 2010 prices and PPPs.

Inclusions

Data refer to total emissions of CO2 (emissions from energy use and industrial processes, e.g. cement production), CH4 (methane emissions from solid waste, livestock, mining of hard coal and lignite, rice paddies, agriculture and leaks from natural gas pipelines), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3).

About this dataset

This dataset presents trends in man-made emissions of major greenhouse gases and emissions by gas.

Purpose of collection

Data exclude indirect CO2.
When interpreting these data it should be kept in mind that they refer to gross direct emissions excluding emissions or removals from land-use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF).

Method of collection/Data provider

Data sources used by OECD: National Inventory Submissions 2016 to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC, CRF tables), and replies to the OECD State of the Environment Questionnaire.
