Maitland is a city that is geographically small relative to the state average and has a moderate urban density. Its major emissions source is electricity consumption with the majority of this coming from residential electricity consumption.

There are many reasons why a profile can change over time including changes in emissions sources, updates to methodology and more accurate data sources. Read our FAQs for more information.

Sub-sector data gives a better understanding of the key stakeholders contributing to emissions within your profile.

Sub-sector breakdowns can be used to identify opportunities for engagement and collaboration with key emitters. There are also opportunities for inspiration and learning with regions which have the same high emitting sectors. For more information on what is included within each emissions source and sector, please see the FAQs.

The Snapshot time-series gives an overview of high-level emissions trends. Visible trends might include the impact of continual decarbonisation of the electricity grid, or the impact of Covid-19 lockdowns on transport emissions.

Because the data is partially modelled, the Snapshot time series is not suitable for detailed tracking of emissions reductions or for tracking the impacts of specific programs. As the quality of available data continues to improve, so will the tracking capabilities of Snapshot in the future.

About this report

This report outlines the major sources of carbon emissions for the entire region (municipality, electorate, or state). 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)
  • Industrial Processes and Product Use (IPPU) (industrial processes, refrigerant use)

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

Snapshot provides you with a profile of your region’s emissions for the inventory year noted and gives a breakdown of emissions by sector. This Snapshot of your greenhouse gas emissions profile is based on a combination of local (Tier 2) and state level (Tier 1) data sets. Snapshot can be used alongside other 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.

For help using this report to plan CO2 reductions strategies, please see our user guide.

Note that the percentages presented might not add up to 100% because of rounding.

This report uses emissions data provided by Google.
