Our purpose is to accelerate carbon abatement for Australia.
As an economic regulator, we administer schemes that work together to measure, manage, reduce or offset Australia's carbon emissions and encourage investment in renewable energy.
In 2015–16 we administered the Emissions Reduction Fund, the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting scheme and the Renewable Energy Target. We also maintained the Australian National Registry of Emissions Units and prepared for the introduction of the safeguard mechanism.
We measure our progress towards achieving our purpose against our Key Performance Indicator Framework. The framework incorporates a set of underlying principles that reflect the agency's core functions as a regulator while considering our current and future performance reporting obligations. Individually, the key performance indicators demonstrate how discrete functions of the agency have performed; collectively, they demonstrate how effectively the agency has met our purpose and objectives.
Our annual performance statement outlines the agency's performance against each of our key performance indicators for the reporting year, to demonstrate that we are achieving our purpose of accelerating carbon abatement for Australia.
