In 2007 Australia introduced a single, national framework for corporations to report on greenhouse gas emissions, energy use and energy production. That framework, known as the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) Scheme, operates under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007.
Corporations that meet an NGER threshold must register and then report each year.
Information collected through the NGER Scheme provides the basis for assessing liability under the carbon pricing mechanism.
The Clean Energy Regulator administers the NGER Scheme.
The Department of the Environment is responsible for NGER-related policy development and review.
