Compliance and enforcement policy: National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007

Source: Dept. of Climate Change
"The purpose of the policy is to inform stakeholders about how the GEDO intents to manage compliance and enforcement with the NGER Act.
Key features of the NGER Act are:
Reporting of greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption and production by large corporations; Public disclosure of corporate level greenhouse gas emissions and energy information; Consistent and comparable data available for decision making, and in particular, the development of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme.
This policy sits within the broader Australian Government law enforcement policy context and should be read in conjunction with other relevant documents."
