This year, understanding carbon exposure through the supply chain is attracting increased interest. Identifying scope 3 emissions enables an organisation to plan for the potential impact of a carbon price.

EEO and NGER reporting deadlines: issues to consider
Experience has shown us that this report is significantly more work than the annual public reports developed for the program to date. Reports to government require all project financial information to be calculated to +/-30%, as well as energy trend information, energy cost information and performance in KPIs.
While the report is due in December 2011, we recommend that companies start to plan for the submission of these reports early. They can use NGER information to inform aspects of the report, but this will not fulfil all information needs. We are concerned that the NGER reporting deadline of end October is only two months before the EEO reporting deadline of end December.
Companies need to plan for these two programs to reduce the potential for double handling information as well as to ensure that deadlines are readily met.
Electricity market training courses: May 2011
