Australia is well on the way to
having new mandatory disclosure requirements for industrial greenhouse gas
emissions following a ministerial meeting last Friday.

Federal and state environment
ministers recommended greenhouse reporting and public disclosure be mandatory
for all companies emitting more than 25,000 tonnes of CO2 or using more than 100
terajoules of energy – and that’s a lot of companies. The recommendation now goes to
COAG – which in
February acknowledged public reporting was an “important” part of any climate
change action agenda.
