We measure gases that are added to the atmosphere through human activities. This does not include natural sources such as biological processes or volcanic emissions.
We report greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2-e) units, which is a measure for how much global warming a given type and amount of greenhouse gas causes, using the equivalent amount of carbon dioxide as the reference. CO2-e is used for describing different greenhouse gases in a common unit, which allows them to be reported consistently.
Data may not include the latest emissions data, which can be found on the Ministry for the Environment’s website.
More information on this dataset and how it relates to our environmental reporting indicators and topics can be found in the attached data quality pdf.
