The flowchart provides an indication of total emissions as reported in “New Zealand’s Greenhouse Gas Inventory 1990 – 2006”
All numbers have been rounded. For the underlying data, please download the Common Report Format tables.
In 2006, total greenhouse gas emissions were 77.9 megatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (Mt CO2-e).
