New Zealand Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1970-2022

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).
  • New Zealand greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2018 was 81,330.00, a 0.89% decline from 2017.
  • New Zealand greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2017 was 82,060.00, a 2.05% increase from 2016.
  • New Zealand greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2016 was 80,410.00, a 1.57% decline from 2015.
  • New Zealand greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2015 was 81,690.00, a 0.06% decline from 2014.
