The Corporate Emissions Reduction Transparency (CERT) report is a voluntary initiative for some of Australia's largest and most well-known companies to share their climate actions.

The CERT report details a company's net emissions position, renewable electricity use, carbon offsets and progress towards their climate-related commitments.

Published CERT reports

The CERT report is published annually.

Accessing CERT 2022

The CERT 2022 is currently unavailable on our new website. It has been migrated from the Clean Energy Regulator’s old website but we are fixing some formatting issues before publishing it. It will be available in due course, until then if you need to access it visit Trove or contact us.

About CERT

CERT presents a company's key climate-related information in one place.

The standardised framework improves transparency by allowing all stakeholders to review and compare progress on commitments.

The CERT also helps hold companies accountable for their public commitments. Participating companies have an obligation to provide accurate data and information for their CERT report.

We work closely with other Australian Government regulators to report concerns about companies misreporting their green credentials. This includes the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

Participating in CERT

Voluntary action by businesses to reduce net emissions is gaining momentum. Investors, regulators and the public are also interested in the progress businesses are making.

Participating in CERT will allow your company to share its climate-related commitments and your progress towards achieving them.

Participation is open to all companies reporting more than 50 kilotonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2-e) emissions per year under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) Scheme.

The future of CERT

The CERT report will continue to evolve and seek alignment with global and Australian carbon accounting frameworks and government policies. This includes the Australian Government’s proposed mandatory climate-related disclosure arrangements.

As demand for climate-related information grows, we will continue to engage with eligible companies, industry associations and other stakeholders to further enhance the CERT report.
