Webinar | Demonstrating best practice GHG abatement

The Western Australian Environmental Protection Authority (WA EPA) introduced a revised version of its Environmental Factor Guideline on Greenhouse Gas Emissions (Guideline) in 2023. One of the main additions to the revised Guideline is the mandate for an independent expert review to demonstrate the adoption of best practices in GHG abatement measures. The purpose of this is to ensure best practices in 'design, technology, and management' measures are adopted by the proponent to mitigate emissions from project inception and through regular evaluations during the project's lifecycle. A similar requirement has been included in the draft NSW EPA Guide for Large Emitters, which is out for consultation until the 1 July 2024.

What constitutes best practice in GHG abatement? How can the adherence to the Safeguard Mechanism complement the best practice requirement?

In this webinar, Emissions and Climate Team Lead at Xodus Matt Holding will outline:

  • The Guideline's requirements for best practice,
  • How the Guidance relates to other GHG related regulation such as the Safeguard Mechanism and the National Greenhouse Gas and Energy Reporting Scheme,
  • How best practice is determined.
