A carbon footprint of your commercial activities

Pangolin GHG Assessments – what to expect

Our audit team identifies and calculates GHG emissions associated with your business’ activities. The final report breaks down your carbon footprint against industry benchmarking. It also contains key performance indicators critical for further greenhouse gas reporting and tracking.

As part of the report we also conduct an Employee Commute Survey identifying the emissions your staff generates travelling to and from work.

Why undertake a footprint?

  • To meet compliance requirements such as NGER.
  • To meet industry expectation such as the CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project).
  • For supply chain or tender requirements.
  • For accurate measurement and management of your own greenhouse gas emissions.
  • To set targets for reduction, or a path to carbon neutrality

Our reports

We comply with international standards and Australian regulations.

For organisations:

  • GHG Protocol’s Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standards
  • ISO 14064-1 and -3 Greenhouse Gases
  • NGER (National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting act)

We also assist with the Emissions and Energy Reporting System (EERS), for government program reporting (Australian Government Clean Energy Regulator).

Compliance obligations under NGER

NGER is Australia’s national reporting framework for greenhouse gas emissions and energy usage. Part of Commonwealth legislation, NGER is mandatory for certain businesses. * Strict penalties are in place for failing to register, report, or incorrect reporting under NGER.

Who is liable to report:

Organisations emitting more than 25kT of CO2-e, or using more than 100TJ of energy from a single facility. Or, corporate level organisations emitting more than 50kT of CO2-e or using more than 200TJ of energy from a single facility.
