Risk Management Systems and Implications for Carbon Emission Reporting and Reduction

A Study of Australian Carbon Intensive Firms
The overarching objective of the project was to identify and examine the drivers and outcomes of risk management systems designed to promote organisational capacity to meet greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets and disclosure in relevant entities, as listed in the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) System register maintained by the Australian Commonwealth Government.
The project spanned from November 2011 to January 2017, and involved a series of studies based on questionnaire surveys and face-to-face interviews of key governance managers, participants in carbon emissions reduction initiatives, environmental managers, and other related stakeholders, as well as documentary analysis.
