New reports are out giving carbon footprint estimates for the Wellington Region and districts including Kāpiti from 2000-01 to 2018-19.
Kāpiti Coast District’s gross emissions (excluding forestry) rose by 11% over the period while the Region’s emissions declined by 5%. For Kāpiti, the largest increase over the period in absolute terms was from transport, which more than negated reductions in other sectors. Industrial processes and product use (IPPU) had a huge percentage increase but is still a small contributor overall.
