17 February 2021

New experimental figures show quarterly greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions rebounded in the September 2020 quarter, after a sharp fall in the June 2020 quarter during the COVID-19 national lockdown, Stats NZ said today.

Seasonally adjusted data showed total emissions were down 8.1 percent (1,641 kilotonnes) in the June quarter as most New Zealanders were forced to stay home during lockdown.

Emissions have since rebounded, up 9.1 percent (1,682 kilotonnes) in the September quarter.
