This is New Zealand’s Greenhouse Gas Inventory report for 1990 – 2008. New Zealand’s Greenhouse Gas Inventory is the official annual report of all human-caused emissions and removals of greenhouse gases in New Zealand and is a Tier 1 statistic. The inventory measures New Zealand’s progress against its obligations under the Kyoto Protocol as well as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). 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.
A snapshot report provides a summary of the information reported in the inventory.
