About the documents
The Emissions Reduction Fund Safeguard Mechanism Framework for developing production variables and default emissions-intensity values (Framework Document) sets out the approach for defining production variables and the method for calculating the default emissions intensity value that corresponds to each production variable. The default emissions intensity calculation method is followed whenever practical.
In cases where the method is not practical, such as insufficient data, supplementary approaches will be considered in consultation with relevant businesses.
The Guidance on supplementary approaches to determine default emissions intensity values is a companion document that provides guidance on the supplementary approaches.
