New Zealand Greenhouse Gas Inventory 1990-2005 and Common Reporting Format.
The New Zealand Greenhouse Gas Inventory 1990 – 2005 is an inventory of New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions and removals. The inventory reports the emissions and removals of greenhouse gases from six sectors: energy; industrial processes; solvents; agriculture; land use, land-use change and forestry; and waste.
This publication is required under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol. The inventory is also a key element in the Ministry for the Environment’s reporting on the state of the environment.
An overview of the inventory report is also available.
