The Good practice guide for environmental reporting explains, at a high level, the steps we undertake in producing an environmental report. It outlines our statistical thinking with reference to the relevant sections of the Environmental Reporting Act 2015, which provides the legislative framework for our reporting.

This guide provides a general overview of what we consider in producing an environmental report. It includes:

  • an overview of the different environmental reporting products we release
  • the broad timeframes we work to in producing an environmental report
  • core data issues (the measurement framework, how we determine measures, how we ensure the quality of and analyse environmental data).

We also cover the steps in disseminating reports, particularly around drawing conclusions and ensuring equal access to information. Within each chapter, we define ‘good practices’ where appropriate.

The guide is intended for data providers, researchers, producers of official statistics, readers of environmental reports, and for the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment (the auditor of environmental reporting).

This guide is a living document that will be updated periodically as we continue to develop national-level environmental reporting.
