Quarterly Update of Australia's National Greenhouse Gas Inventory: December Quarter 2011

Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency, 2012

Emissions increased in the December quarter 2011, with trend emissions rising by 0.3% and seasonally adjusted and weather normalised emissions increasing 0.1% (Figures 1-3). This is the fourth consecutive quarter of positive trend growth.The trend increase for the quarter was largely driven byincreases in emissions from fugitive emissions as a result of increased mining of black coal (see section 2.4). This increase was partially offset by decreases in emissions from the electricity (see section 2.1) and industrial processes (see section 2.5) sectors.
