NGER Compliance Services

Earth Systems has assisted mining companies and process facilities throughout Australia meet their National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) Act 2007 requirements. The NGER Act requires large energy users and greenhouse gas (GHG) emitters to quantitatively report GHG emissions, energy production and energy consumption data from July 1st 2008. For larger entities with complex industrial processes on multiple sites, reporting activities under the Act is not a simple task.

Corporations must apply to register by 31 August following the end of the reporting period in which they first met a threshold (the reporting period is based on financial years). The thresholds for reporting reduce each year, so over time more and more companies will be required to register and report their GHG emissions and energy activity data.
