Facilities required to report under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme can receive credits for emissions reductions achieved by projects registered under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF). This Methodology Determination (method) sets out the rules for those projects. The method also provides flexibility to project proponents to determine which emissions reduction activities are most appropriate for their facility.
To use this method and take part in the ERF, you need to apply to the Clean Energy Regulator. The Regulator develops the methods and manages project registration, compliance and crediting emissions reductions for projects under the ERF.

The Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC) conducts public consultations before giving advice about making or varying a method. Once finalised the ERAC advises the Minister on whether the new or varied method meets the offsets integrity standards.
