Your Footprint. Australia’s Trees. Our Future.

Carbon emissions

Carbon emissions do not discriminate by border and one tonne of emissions released locally is felt globally.
But, just as importantly, one tonne of carbon emissions reduced locally helps to lower emissions on a global scale.
Everything we do to reduce carbon emissions will make a difference.

What are carbon emissions?

We all create carbon emissions by going about our everyday lives. Carbon dioxide is one of the main greenhouse gases that trap heat in our atmosphere, causing our climate to change.

Australia’s emissions

Australia has one of the highest greenhouse gas emissions per capita of all developed countries.

In the year to March 2023, our per capita emissions were 17.8 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent. As a nation, there is great scope for us to reduce our emissions by changing our behaviour.
