Review of the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting legislation

The Climate Change Authority reviewed the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting legislation in 2018.

The review focused on the three key aspects of the legislation: emissions and energy reporting, the safeguard mechanism and the auditing framework. The review considered if each of the individual elements is achieving its objectives, is fit for purpose and if any improvements can be made.

The Authority is required to review the operation of the legislation by 31 December 2018 and then complete further reviews every five years.
