2015–16 national greenhouse and energy information is now available

28 February 2017

​The Clean Energy Regulator today released the 2015–16 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting data.  

Each year, Australian corporations that meet certain thresholds are required to report their emissions and energy information to the Clean Energy Regulator. This captures about 60 per cent of Australia’s total emissions.

In 2015–16, total reported scope 1 emissions rose 2.2 per cent on adjusted 2014–15 data. This rise represents emissions released into the atmosphere as a direct result of an activity, or series of activities conducted by reporting corporations.

It is important to note that the 2015–16 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting dataset uses the updated global warming potential values introduced on 1 July 2015 through the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Regulations 2008. To allow for a like for like comparison, data from previous years has been adjusted to reflect updated global warming potentials for some reported gases.
