Facilities method

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.
