About the document

The National Inventory by Economic Sector provides information on national emissions on a Kyoto accounting basis, disaggregated by Australia-New Zealand Standard Industry Classifications (ANZSIC ). It complements the National Greenhouse Gas Inventory, which provides estimates of emissions classified according to process-based emission categories (see Notes for details).

  • In 2008 the major emission sources were primary industries and electricity, gas and water sectors.
  • Australia’s primary industries (agriculture, forestry and fishing and mining) accounted for 30.9% of direct emissions and the electricity, gas and water economic sector accounted for 36.6% of Australia’s emissions.
