Managing information, reporting and verification
Quality information is essential for meeting the reporting requirements of mandatory and voluntary Federal and State Government programs. Energetics assists clients in data collection and validation as well as processing and preparation of mandatory and voluntary reporting programs.
Compliance with government programs
A range of Federal and State Government programs require businesses to quantify their impact in terms of energy and water use and emissions, and report to government or publicly. Many also require an assessment of the potential for improvement, and reporting of business’ response to these opportunities. Compliance requirements are typically accompanied by verification processes that seek to audit business’ level of compliance.
Energetics helps clients to navigate through their obligations, risks and opportunities associated with programs such as:
- National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) System
- Energy Efficiency Opportunities
- National Pollutant Inventory
- NSW Energy and Water Savings Action Plans
- Victoria’s Environment and Resource Efficiency Program
- Queensland Smart Energy Plan Program
Energetics offers a comprehensive information management and reporting solution for carbon, energy, water, waste and other environmental sustainability metrics that is used by many of Australia's leading organisations. CarbonScope? helps our clients to save money, reduce consumption and emissions, whilst at the same time ensuring high quality auditable data for accurate and reliable reporting
Organisations are increasingly using external verification to demonstrate transparency and confidence within sustainability reports. Governments also have audit and verification processes in place for many programs such as NGERS and EEO. Energetics provides internal verification reviews and expert input to external assurance with third-party service providers, to provide a high degree of confidence in clients’ reporting to Government and the public, and to help clients proactively manage their audit risk.
We are also Greenhouse Friendly? verifiers and are represented on the Greenhouse Friendly? Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) expert panel.
Beyond compliance reporting and verification
High quality data and robust assessments of opportunities provide clients with the ability to realise significant savings by going beyond the minimum reporting requirements.
Energetics supports clients in moving beyond compliance in many ways through continuous improvement, extending opportunities assessments to include new design, and sustainability reporting. Sustainability reporting Appropriate public sustainability reporting is a critical component of market positioning strategies. We assist many clients to develop Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) reporting strategies to attain public recognition for their achievements, and then partner to deliver the best reports. Energetics also helps clients to participate in other voluntary reporting initiatives such as FTSE4Good, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and Sustainable Asset Management (SAM) Ratings.
