Australia’s National Pollutant Inventory Reporting (NPI)
The National Pollutant Inventory (NPI) is a pollutant release and transfer registry adopted by both State and Federal legislators. Currently, facilities are required to report if they exceed any NPI thresholds, which relate to fuel and electricity consumption, as well as to the handling, manufacture, import and processing of reportable substances. The legislative framework for establishment of the NPI is outlined in the NPI National Environment Protection Measure (NPI NEPM).
For more than a decade, Ramboll Environ has been providing ongoing NPI guidance and support services across a broad range of industries from mining and quarrying, to mineral processing, power generation, manufacturing and food processing. One of our key strengths is designing custom data handling and management tools with built-in quality control measures that align with existing reporting systems. These tools minimise the need to re-handle data, improve efficiency and provide quality assurance.
Our diverse and experienced team help clients to understand and meet their legislative obligations, as well as actively look for opportunities for streamlining NPI reporting services with other environmental compliance management services, such as the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Scheme (NGERS).
