Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions remain unchanged in Q3’19
Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions in the September 2019 quarter (Q3) were unchanged compared with both the previous quarter and Q3 2018 (seasonally adjusted and weather normalised). Annual emissions were down 0.3 percent, ANZ Research reported.
Excluding land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF), emissions were down 1.0 percent q/q and 0.6 percent y/y. Emissions from the 2019-20 bushfires were not included in these estimates.
The agriculture (-2.2 percent q/q) and electricity (-1.5 percent q/q) sectors recorded the largest declines in industry emissions in Q3. Only waste (+0.6 percent q/q) and stationary energy excluding electricity (+0.5 percent q/q) recorded increases.
Most sectors recorded declines over the year, but fugitive emissions (+7.4 percent y/y) and emissions from stationary energy excluding electricity (+3.0 percent y/y) rose. Annual emission intensity was down 2.0 percent, while annual emissions per capita were down 1.8 percent, the report added.
