In 2007 Australia introduced a single, national framework for corporations to report on greenhouse gas emissions, energy use and energy production.
Corporations that meet a National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (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 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGER Act).
The Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency is responsible for NGER-related policy development and review.
