Energy and greenhouse emissions

In Australia, Telstra is subject to the reporting requirements of
the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007, which
requires Telstra to report its annual Australian greenhouse
gas emissions, energy consumption and energy production.
Telstra has implemented systems and processes for the
collection and reporting of data and has, in accordance with
our obligations, reported to the Clean Energy Regulator on an
annual basis. The next report is due on 31 October 2017 and will
again be supported with an independent assurance report.
In the United Kingdom, Telstra is subject to the Energy Savings
Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Regulations 2014. Telstra qualifies
for ESOS and must carry out energy savings assessments every
four years. These assessments are audits of the energy used
by our buildings, network facilities and transport to identify
cost-effective energy saving measures. Telstra has met our
obligations under ESOS for the first compliance period ended
5 December 2015. Telstra’s obligations for ESOS’ second
compliance period will be reassessed by the next qualification
date on 31 December 2018.
