NSW Government calculated an average emissions offset figure, to assist NSW vehicle owners in offsetting their emissions. We used data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), to calculate the average carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions figure for all light vehicles on New South Wales roads.
Our calculations included data back to 2002 to ensure we factored in older vehicles, with higher emissions rates. We then multiplied the average yearly CO2 total, by the average cost of an Australian Carbon Credit Unit, over the past year.
Please note the suggested offset figures are estimates only. All carbon credit values including Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) are subject to market fluctuations, and actual offset amounts are constantly subject to change.
