National Pollutant Inventory (NPI) and National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) Reporting

NPI and NGER reporting - Umwelt

Umwelt has recently been involved in a large National Pollutant Inventory (NPI) and National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) compliance reporting season. Taking place across July to October 2019, and led by Malcolm Sedgwick, Umwelt assisted a large range of clients to prepare high quality reports and meet their greenhouse gas and pollution reporting requirements.

NPI reports are legally required to be submitted to the NPI by 30 September each year. Failure to submit an NPI report may breach State-based operational licenses, and can warrant penalties issued by State-based authorities. Similarly, NGER reports are legally required to be submitted to the Clean Energy Regulator by 31 October each year.

Failing to submit an NGER report can attract a financial penalty of up to $420,000. Facilities can also be fined $21,000 per day for every day the NGER report is overdue.

NPI and NGER data is published and publicly available. Accountability ensures all organisations reporting NPI and NGER data to have a vested interest in ensuring their data is accurate and provides fair representation of their annual environmental impact.

At Umwelt, all NPI and NGER reports were submitted on time, and all met the compliance requirements of the NPI and NGER programs. The process involved data collection, data verification and reporting. Umwelt assisted clients to understand their reporting requirements and prepare robust and auditable reports.

Umwelt has over 10 years’ experience preparing NPI and NGER reports, producing hundreds of reports for a wide variety of facilities. We can provide assistance to any organisation who is seeking a high quality NPI and NGER reporting service provider.
