We have published the 2022–23 National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) data.

Each year, Australian corporations that meet certain thresholds are required to report their emissions and energy information to us. This data helps inform government policy and programs and meet Australia’s international reporting obligations.

For the 2022–23 year, 949 corporations reported a total of 307 million tonnes of scope 1 greenhouse gas emissions. This represents an overall decrease in emissions of 2.8 million tonnes compared to totals for the previous year.

The decrease in emissions mainly came from the electricity generation sector which saw the increased use of renewable energy (such as solar generation) and the decreased use of black coal. This led to emissions from electricity generators decreasing by 2.9% or 4.1 million tonnes. Other industry sectors had changes in emissions compared to the previous reporting year.
