Between 2001 and 2019, the Wellington Region’s gross emissions fell by 5%. Transport emissions have grown by 14% over the period.

The update relates to all emissions from activities occurring within the region’s boundaries, as well as emissions from all waste generated in the region (regardless of where it is disposed of) and electricity used in the region (regardless of where it is generated). Half of the emissions from air and sea travel beginning or ending at the region’s ports was also included.
