National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting

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.

For more details see About the NGER Scheme.​

Are you registered to report?

Carbon price liable entities who are required to report an emissions number for 2013-14 and who are not yet registered, must apply to register by 31 August 2014. Controlling corporations who must report for 2013-14 and who are not yet registered must also apply by 31 August 2014.

Carbon pricing mechanism repeal

The Clean Energy Act 2011 has been repealed. This abolishes the carbon pricing mechanism from 1 July 2014. Liable entities must still meet their carbon price obligations for the 2013-14 financial year. More information can be found on the carbon pricing mechanism repeal page.
