*Disclaimer: This Carbon Emissions Calculator (the 'Calculator') is a free tool designed by Pacific National to help users estimate the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions of freight by Pacific National rail transportation and the potential GHG emissions reductions and savings users may potentially achieve by switching from long-haul trucking to Pacific National rail transportation.

The Calculator and the resulting estimates are a high-level comparison of the potential Scope 1 GHG Emissions (metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions) based on distance and metric tonnes of freight to be hauled and should not be relied upon for reporting purposes.

The Calculator methodology incorporates emissions factors for diesel combustion in rail and road operations which have been obtained from the Australian Government and industry sources. The industry sources include Climate Active, National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007, National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Safeguard Mechanism) Rule 2015, Measurement Determination (, 2021-22 published data highlights ( and GHG Protocol.

By their nature, the forward-looking information and estimates provided by the Calculator involve numerous assumptions, inherent risks, and uncertainties.

Pacific National provides no assurance that the estimates provided by the Calculator will accurately reflect actual net savings, GHG emissions reductions or other outcomes users may achieve. The information contained in and provided by this Calculator (including its methodology, assumptions, and calculations) has not been independently verified; and no representation, condition, guarantee, undertaking, or warranty, express or implied, is or will be made regarding such information, including the accuracy, reliability, adequacy, or completeness thereof.

Pacific National bears no responsibility for the data input to the Calculator by users or for the outputs of the Calculator and will in no event be liable for any direct, incidental or consequential loss or damage of any kind, arising out of or in connection with, any use of the Calculator, reliance on the Calculator's output, or reliance on any other information or advice on this website.
