    About this report

    This report outlines the major sources of carbon emissions for the entire municipality. Due to the approximate nature of the profile, the emission values are represented as rounded numbers. This report includes the following sources:

    • Stationary energy (grid supplied electricity/gas)
    • Transport (on-road use and domestic passenger air travel)
    • Waste (landfill and wastewater)
    • Agriculture (enteric fermentation, manure management, and synthetic fertilizer use)
    • Land Use Change (land clearance and reforestation)

    It has been developed to be consistent with the Global Protocol of Carbon Emissions reporting (GPC Protocol), the main international standard for cities and local government areas.

    The Snapshot provides you with a profile of your municipality’s emissions for the inventory year (2017) and gives a breakdown of emissions by sector. This Snapshot of your local government area’s greenhouse gas emissions profile is based on portioning state level data sets. Snapshot can be used alongside local data sets where more detail is needed.

    There are a number of minor emissions sources that are included as part of a larger total or excluded. The full list of inclusions and exclusions can be found in the Methodology document.
