Scope of this Reporting
: Submission on National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Amendment (Transparency in Carbon Emissions Accounting) Bill 2020
Australia’s fossil fuel exports are more than double direct domestic emissions in CO2 potential. Such ‘scope 3’ emissions should be reported and included in government accounting. Mining lobby objections do not stack up and are contradicted by the actions of many of their own members companies. Emissions data release should be insulated from the Minister in timing and presentation.
