National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER)
La Trobe University is required to report annual greenhouse gas emissions, energy production and energy consumption data to the Clean Energy Regulator.
By 28 February each year the Clean Energy Regulator must publish some of the data reported under the NGER Act for the previous reporting (financial) year.
In accordance with section 24 of the NGER Act, if a registered corporation has scope 1 and scope 2 emissions above the publishing threshold of 50 kilotonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent greenhouse gas emissions, the following totals are published:
- scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions
- scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions, and
- net energy consumption.
To view La Trobe University's published data visit the Clean Energy Regulator website.
National Pollutant Inventory Reporting (NPI)
The National Pollutant Inventory (NPI) provides the community, industry and government with free information about substance emissions in Australia. It has emission estimates for 93 toxic substances and the source and location of these emissions. More than 4000 facilities from a wide range of industry sectors report annually to the NPI.
La Trobe University reports on its annual natural gas combustion within the Melbourne campus trigeneration system and high temperature hot water boilers and the related air emissions in September each year. The reports can be viewed on the NPI website.
