Greenhouse gases and energy

Greenhouse GasesScope 1 EmissionsScope 2 EmissionsScope 3 EmissionsEnergy Production and Energy ConsumptionThe greenhouse gases that are reported under the NGER Scheme include carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), sulphur hexafluoride (Sulfr hexafluoride) and specified kinds of hydro fluorocarbons and perfluorocarbons. When reporting emissions, energy production and energy consumption data, only those activities, fuels and energy commodities for which there are applicable methodsunder the NGER Scheme are reported. Greenhouse gas emissions are measured as kilotonnes of carbon dioxide equivalence (CO2-e). This means that the amount of a greenhouse gas that a business emits is measured as an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide which has a global warming potential of one. For example, in 2015–16, one tonne of methane released into the atmosphere will cause the same amount of global warming as 25 tonnes of carbon dioxide. So, the one tonne of methane is expressed as 25 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalence, or 25 t CO2-e.
