This FACT indicates the total greenhouse (carbon dioxide) gas emissions in tonnes per person in 2016. The state and territory breakdown of total emissions includes emissions from daily commercial, industry, residential, land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF).
The state with the highest emissions per person is the Northern Territory, at 72.10 tonnes of carbon dioxide emitted per person. The state with the lowest emissions per person was Tasmania, at 0.0 tonnes. This represents a process of net sequestration, whereby greenhouse gasses are stored in the soil.
