Frequently Asked Questions

How are waste emissions allocated to my Snapshot profile?

In line with the GPC, waste emissions are calculated at the point of waste generation rather than waste treatment. Snapshot waste emissions for the state are distributed across all regions based on population and other factors. This enables regions who do not have waste treatment facilities within their boundary to understand the impacts of waste generated locally. This is similar to the approach taken for electricity whereby emissions are counted by the region in which the electricity is used rather than where the power plant is located.
