Contractors provide new guidance for the construction industry
The Australian Constructors Association (ACA) has released an Industry Discussion Paper to provide guidance to construction industry organisations with a reporting obligation under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (NGER Act).
It aims to provide structure and guidance to improve the consistency and comparability of reporting within the construction sector consistent with the NGER legislative framework", Barrett said.
Barrett said that the Industry Discussion Paper had been prepared following extensive consultations with industry experts and in consultation with the Department of Climate Change's National Greenhouse Energy Reporting Office (GERO) and the Greenhouse and Energy Data Officer (GEDO).
The Industry Discussion Paper does not replace the need for an entity to determine its own reporting obligations, responsibilities and processes. However it does fulfil an important role in providing guidance and developing consistency in reporting", Barrett said.
"ACA views this as an iterative document that will need to be reviewed and further developed as the industry confronts its reporting obligations. However it is an important first step and we hope it will provide an important resource for the industry," Barrett added.
