We are seeking feedback on updates to the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) Scheme.
As part of our regular review of the Scheme, we are seeking feedback on proposed changes including:
- introduction of an optional supplementary ‘market-based’ method for determining emissions associated with the consumption of electricity (‘scope 2’ emissions)
- an update to Method 1 for estimating emissions of methane from Queensland open cut coal mines
- an update to Method 1 for estimating methane released from landfills (other than from flaring of methane)
- creation of two new fuel types, renewable paraffinic diesel and renewable paraffinic kerosene.
The changes will come into effect on 1 July 2023 and would apply to NGER reports submitted by 31 October 2024 for the 2023–24 NGER reporting year. The changes would not affect reports to be submitted by 31 October 2023 for the 2022-23 reporting year.
View the proposed changes and submit your feedback on our Consultation hub.
Submissions close Friday 28 April 2023.
