Vermont's Emissions

 

In 2011, Vermont’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions were approximately 8.11 million metric tons.  This represents a return to 1990 levels,

  • 46% of those emissions were from transportation
  • 32% of those emissions were from residential / commercial / industrial fuel use
  • 10% were from agriculture
  • 5% were from electricity consumption
  • 4% were from various industrial processes
  • 3% were from waste in landfills

Projections for 2012, based on transportation and residential/commercial/industrial fuel use, show the state's GHG emissions remaining relatively constant.

 

MMTCO2e = Million Metric Tons Carbon Dioxide (CO2) equivalent

 

Vermont’s future GHG emissions reduction goals can only be met if we implement measures that significantly reduce our demand for energy, and change the ways in which we generate it.  See Vermont Initiatives and What Can I Do? for more information.
