Energy use is the largest driver of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, mainly due to the burning of fossil fuels in electricity generation, transport and industry.
Based on electricity, petroleum and natural gas energy data, the pitt&sherry Carbon Emissions Index (CEDEX®) is the benchmark indicator for Australia’s carbon emissions from the energy sectors.
The CEDEX® quarterly report provides an early indication of Australian GHG emission trends. Trends in energy emissions are a reliable indicator of Australia’s ability to achieve emissions mitigation and are key to reducing emissions as a whole. CEDEX® has been providing a comprehensive and early indication of key GHG and energy trends in Australia since 2009 and is considered to be the most comprehensive report of its kind in the market today. CEDEX® is an assessment tool that is available to community and government organisations. pitt&sherry’s CEDEX® reports can be downloaded from the links below.
