Companies are responsible for assessing their own obligations under the
National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGER Act). The four steps below will help you understand your obligations under the NGER scheme.
Assess your obligations You will need to consider whether your company meets a facility or corporate group threshold for scope 1 or scope 2 emissions of greenhouse gases or for energy consumption or energy production.
Register and deregister
If a facility or corporate group threshold is met, the controlling corporation will need to register under the NGER Scheme. In some circumstances a controlling corporation may choose to transfer reporting obligations using a Reporting Transfer Certificate or a Section 22X agreement. A registered corporation that no longer triggers reporting thresholds should apply for deregistration.
Report You will then need to report through the Emissions and Energy Reporting System.
Record keeping, monitoring and compliance Record keeping, monitoring and compliance are essential to ensuring the integrity of the NGER scheme and form an important part of the reporting cycle.
