Australian companies can now sign up to publicly report on their emissions reduction commitments and progress, in a clear and consistent way.
The Corporate Emissions Reduction Transparency report (CERT) supports climate-related disclosures by Australian companies covered by the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) scheme and gives investors, shareholders and the public a clearer picture of action taken by companies to reduce net emissions.
The CERT report is a simple report that will be published by the Clean Energy Regulator. It will aid comparisons with some elements of progress verified against quality agency data.
11 companies across a wide range of sectors have expressed interest in opting into CERT
ahead of the launch of the pilot.
Participation is voluntary and open to all companies reporting more than 50 kilotonnes of emissions a year under the NGER scheme.

The CERT report will initially operate as a pilot to allow refinements to the guidelines and the report format following practical experience.
Companies can opt-in to the CERT report pilot by 30 January 2022 using a simple online form.
