Emissions Measurement & Reporting

We recommend signatories develop their inventories in line with the Ministry for Environment’s guidance for measuring, reporting and offsetting greenhouse gas emissions, ISO 14064-1, and/or the Greenhouse Gas Protocol standards and guidance.

What are the requirements?

2017 Statement – minimum commitments

To measure your greenhouse gas emissions and publicly report on them.

  • As a minimum, all signatories must report their scope 1 and 2 emissions in full.
  • We also strongly encourage reporting of material (e.g. significant) scope 3 emission sources.

2019 Statement – additional commitments

To have your greenhouse gas inventory independently verified by a third party.

  • For most signatories:
    • Verification should be in line with ISO 14064-3
    • May take the form of limited assurance or reasonable assurance
  • For signatories with revenue <5million NZD
    • Verification may be third party confirmation that the methodology and measurement is consistent with ISO14064-1
