National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting

Identify and report your business's carbon footprint

Conversio is a Brisbane-based carbon accounting and reporting consultancy. We work with you to measure your carbon emissions in accordance with the requirements set out by the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) Act 2007 and supporting legislation and documentation.  

Our NGER reports: 

  • Are prepared in accordance with the requirements set out in the NGER Act 2007, ISO 14064 – Part 1, and the GHG Protocol, 
  • are based on the best data available at the time of publication, while being transparent about the data’s limitations, 
  • communicate any material discrepancies identified, 
  • include your organisations gross emissions for its chosen inventory boundary separate from and independent of any GreenPower or carbon emission offsets purchases,  
  • report information that is relevant, complete, consistent, transparent and accurate, and 
  • can be used for mandatory NGER reporting, as well as for voluntary reporting under the National Carbon Offset Standard Carbon Neutral Program, Airport Carbon AccreditationCDP, or the Global Reporting Initiative. 

Section 19 NGER report 

Controlling corporations who exceed either a corporate group or a facility threshold must report their scope 1 and scope 2 emissions and energy production and consumption data to the Clean Energy Regulator under section 19 of the NGER Act. 

NGER thresholds 

If you have met any of the following thresholds, you will need to submit a report to the Clean Energy Regulator for each year in which the relevant threshold was met. 

  • Facility threshold 
  • 25,000 tonnes CO2-e (scope 1 and scope 2 emissions), or 
  • production or consumption of 100 TJ or more of energy per year. 
  • Corporate group threshold 
  • 50,000 tonnes CO2-e (scope 1 and scope 2 emissions), or 
  • production or consumption of 200 TJ or more of energy per year. 

Organisational and operational boundaries 

We can assist you in determining the organisational and operational boundaries. These boundaries are imaginary lines encompassing the carbon emissions to be included in a GHG inventory. 

Organisational boundaries determine which operations are owned or controlled by your organisation and therefore should be included in the NGER report, while operational boundaries determine which operations generate carbon emissions and need to be included in the NGER report, and how those sources should be classified. 

Operational control 

We clarify whether your organisation has operational control over facilities and activities. Operational control exists when your organisation, or one of its subsidiaries, has the full authority to introduce and implement operating policies at the operation. This approach is consistent with the common practice of reporting emissions for each facility operated by your organisation. You must report 100% of the emissions from each operation under your operational control, regardless of its financial stake in the operation.
