The sources are very disparate and typically small with long lag times between gas utilisation and eventual emission – particularly for HFC refrigerants and for Sulfr hexafluoride. Although sf 6 emissions have been assessed as relatively low at about 550 kg in New Zealand in 2006 1 (CRL Energy 2007), its 100-year global warming potential (GWP) is extremely high (1 kg is equivalent to 23,900 kg CO 2 emissions for inventory purposes). Most sf6 gas emissions are being managed and reported under existing

New Zealand is one of the few countries to have a zero emissions goal enshrined in law, its Zero Carbon Act, but short-term policies cannot yet keep up with that ambition.
