New Zealand’s greenhouse gas emissions fell for the second year in a row, decreasing by 0.7% in 2021 compared to the previous year. The country’s Ministry for the Environment said reduced agricultural emissions were the primary factor, with emissions from the sector falling 1.5%, in part due to lower numbers of dairy cattle and sheep and less use of synthetic nitrogen fertiliser. Net emissions rose by 3% in the year, partly due to high harvest rates in plantation forests, while methane emissions from cows fell by 1.2%. Since 1990, New Zealand’s gross emissions have risen by 19%.
