National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (Cth) - Level 3

View Legislation

This Act for National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER ) provides for a single national reporting framework for information related to greenhouse gas emissions, greenhouse gas projects, energy production and energy consumption. At present, organisations that are (1) Constitutional corporations; and (2) Meet an NGER threshold; must report their greenhouse gas emissions, energy production, and energy use for a reporting year for each year in which they meet a threshold. The legislation includes regulations and guidelines for measurement of emissions, energy production and use to ensure standardisation of terms and measurement data. The Act aims to provide the basis for the future introduction of an emissions trading scheme.

The University currently does not meet the threshold for registration and reporting.
