Auditing & Reporting

Audit and Assurance

Audits provide assurance over the business systems and processes used to comply with state and federal climate change policies. They are critical in maintaining the confidence and integrity of the schemes while supporting businesses to improve the systems used to comply.

Ndevr Environmental is one of only a few specialist consultancies that are accredited auditors federally on the Clean Energy Regulator’s Auditor panel, under the NSW Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) Energy Savings Scheme, and the Victorian Government’s Essential Services Commission VEUP Scheme. We offer audit services for all schemes administered by the Clean Energy Regulator, state-based schemes, and the Climate Active program.

National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) | Safeguard Mechanism

We are registered auditors under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 and provide assurance in compliance with the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting framework that covers both NGERs and Safeguard Mechanism liable entities. For more than five years we have been active members of the Clean Energy Regulator’s Audit Panel and provide audit and assurance services for some of Australia’s largest and most complex emitters.

Emissions Reduction Fund & the Carbon Farming Initiative

Our experienced in-house team provides assurance services in line with the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011, under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF). We are one of the most active and experienced firms in this space and have audited hundreds of ERF projects – both land-based and industrial. For more than five years we’ve been a member of the Clean Energy Regulator’s Audit Panel.

NSW and VIC Energy Efficiency Schemes

There are a number of Australian State Government schemes which enable energy consumers to monetise their energy savings. These include the NSW Energy Savings Scheme (EES) and the Victorian Government’s Victorian Energy Efficiency program (VEET), which incentivise investment in energy efficiency. We are experienced panel members of both schemes and conduct rigorous, efficient and cost-effective audits under both programs to assist organisations in compliance.


Climate Active Carbon Neutral Certification

The leading carbon neutral certification program in Australia is the Federal Government’s Climate Active Carbon Neutral Program, which requires entities to calculate, reduce, offset, audit and report on emissions based on international standards tailored to Australia. We have one of the largest teams of registered Climate Active Consultants in Australia, who undertake technical assessments and conduct third party validation for carbon neutral certification against Climate Active, and assist with assurance of Climate Active applications.

Renewable Energy Targets | EITE Auditing

We are registered auditors under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 and provide assurance in compliance with the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Safeguard Mechanism (SGM)) Rule 2015, as well as ASAE3000 and ASAE3410.

Our extensive experience with the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) system that underpins both the SGM and Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) has enabled us to develop efficient and robust audit processes in step with the legislative context. Our experience and large and diversified in-house team drawn from various backgrounds (engineering, legal, policy) also ensures that we can efficiently identify material matters and meet tight audit timelines.
