Decisions must be made as to how emissions will be aggregated. Three approaches include:
Operational control is default boundary!
– required for reporting to Australia’s National Energy and Greenhouse Reporting System (NGER)
What is operational control? Defined in Australian law as the right to introduce or implement operating, health and safety or environmental policies
Scope 1“Fuel You Burn”
Scope 2 “Fuel burnt for You”
Scope 3 “Emissions from services You use and products You produce”
NB: No longer considered “voluntary” for Australia’s top 200 companies

From 1 July 2012 – Australia has a price on carbon set at $23 per tonne of CO2-e – following a number of other countries
NB: Emissions trading works: EU verified emissions showed a decrease of 11% in 2009
Some pay directly
eg. Large users of coal such as coal fired power stations
Q: Who pays the Carbon price?
Some pay indirectly
eg. Consumers of electricity / smaller users of fuels
Think petrol excise – you pay, but payment collected upstream
NB: Very costly for some
Costs spread across the economy
- current and future requirements;
- administrative burden;
- direct and pass-through carbon price costs
Experience shows that sustainability makes good business sense
