The Clean Energy Regulator today released the 2016–17 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting data.
Each year, Australian corporations that meet certain thresholds are required to report their emissions and energy information to the Clean Energy Regulator. This data helps inform government policy and programs and meet Australia’s international reporting obligations.
In 2016–17, corporations reported a total of:
336 million tonnes of scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide equivalence)
86 million tonnes of scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide equivalence), and
3887 petajoules of net energy consumed.
The reported 336 million tonnes of scope 1 emissions represents a 0.5 per cent increase on the previous year, which is the lowest year-on-year growth in emissions in the last three years.
It is important to note that information published as part of the 2016–17 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting dataset cannot be directly compared to publications from previous years for a range of reasons, including updates made to totals to account for report resubmissions.
For more information, see the 2016–17 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting data highlights.
