Good Practice: Improving national GHG inventories with corporate data in Australia

Australia introduced a legal national framework for reporting and disseminating corporate data on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, energy production and energy consumption. This scheme is legislated through the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) Act 2007 and is known as the NGER scheme. The corporate data collected through the scheme is in a format that can be used directly in Australia’s national GHG emissions inventory.
