Australia's 10 highest emitters (scope 1) and proportion of scope 1 emissions from 10 highest emitters
The National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) scheme is a single national framework for corporations to report greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption and energy production. Each year, Australian corporations that meet certain thresholds must report their emissions and energy information under the NGER scheme.
