Emissions - TAS

What is Mt CO₂-e? Emissions are a combination of gases. Most are Carbon Dioxide (CO₂). The other gases are measured as a Carbon Dioxide equivalent (CO₂-e) based on the amount of heat they trap in the atmosphere. They’re measured in Million Tonnes (Mt).

Tasmania has already achieved net-zero emissions.

This is because the state's renewable energy production - particularly hydroelectric power -  exceeds its own energy consumption.

Tasmania aims to maintain its net-zero emissions status and help Australia's overall emissions reduction.
