Corporate Emissions Reduction Transparency report

07 July 2022

The Corporate Emissions Reduction Transparency (CERT) report is a new voluntary initiative for eligible companies to present a snapshot of their climate-related commitments, progress and net emissions position. It presents this all in one place, using a standardised framework.

The CERT report pilot was developed through a co-design process with industry and two rounds of public consultation. An evaluation of the pilot will be completed in 2022. We expect the design and guidelines will evolve in future years. Find out more about the consultation undertaken to date in the consultation hub.

How to participate in the next CERT report

Who can opt in

Participation is voluntary and open to companies reporting over 50 kilotonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2-e) emissions a year under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) scheme.

Why opt in

The CERT report is a way for companies to show progress towards reducing emissions or increasing their use of renewable electricity and their use of carbon offsets using a standard framework.

The CERT report is the only initiative in Australia where key elements are verified using data held by the Clean Energy Regulator alongside information and data on scope 1 (direct combustion) and scope 2 (electricity) emissions. The flexibility of the report enables companies to also provide detail on their commitments to reduce scope 3 (supply chain) emissions, as well as international operations. It can be used by companies to support their corporate reporting under other leading sustainability initiatives, such as the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Companies will be able opt in to the 2023 CERT report from November 2022 via our Client Portal
