New Zealand Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1970-2021

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 2012 was 78,130.98, a 3.01% increase from 2011.
  • New Zealand greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2011 was 75,851.12, a 0.38% decline from 2010.
  • New Zealand greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2010 was 76,141.66, a 0.1% increase from 2009.
  • New Zealand greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2009 was 76,062.15, a 6.61% decline from 2008.
