The transparency of reporting on companies’ emissions in Australia is completely inadequate. Justifications for this secrecy don’t add up.

Data around firms’ emissions for the prior financial year were released yesterday as part of the Government’s National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting System.

Data should instead be provided by an individual physical facility – such as a power station, chemical plant, metal smelter or mine – where it is a significant emitter or energy user.
