2012-13 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting data publication released

28 Feb 2014

Published by the Clean Energy Regulator

The Clean Energy Regulator has today released the 2012-13 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) data publication.

Australian corporations that meet certain thresholds are required to report their emissions and energy information to the Clean Energy Regulator each year under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) Scheme.

The NGER data publication is released to provide information about greenhouse gas emissions, and energy production and energy use by corporate groups across Australia and provides a rich data set that is valuable to Australia. Data reported under the NGER Scheme is a key input to Australia's National Greenhouse Gas Inventory.

Today's release is a point-in-time publication that provides data reported by corporations that meet the NGER publishing threshold of 50 kilotonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent greenhouse gas emissions.
The publication includes the total scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions, total scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions and net energy consumption data reported for the 2012-13 financial year for these corporations.

For the first time, the NGER data publication includes emissions and energy information for designated electricity generators. This information is intended to better inform the community on the performance of electricity generators and will play an important role in informing government and regulatory bodies, industry bodies and Australia’s energy markets.

Further information regarding reported greenhouse gas emissions for 2012-13, including state and territory and industry breakdowns, is available from a fact sheet on our website.

The Clean Energy Regulator has also published the National Greenhouse and Energy Register for 2012-13. This includes details of each organisation that was registered under the NGER Act for the 2012-13 reporting year.

It is important to note that information published under the NGER Scheme does not identify the liability of an entity under the carbon pricing mechanism. Emissions numbers reported by entities liable under the carbon pricing mechanism are available from the Liable Entities Public Information Database.
