Legislated Environmental Reporting Requirements: Compliance Issues at the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park AuthorityAustralasian Journal of Natural Resources Law and Policy
Document TypeJournal Article
AbstractWithin a broader push for mandatory environmental reporting, many public and private Australian companies must report on their environmental compliance in their annual reports under s 299(1)(f) of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth). In a similar vein, Commonwealth organizations are required to report annually on their environmental performance and their contribution to ecologically sustainable development under s 516A of the Environment Protection and Biodiversiry Conservation Act 1999 (Cth). An investigation of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority's response to these reporting requirements indicates that it has not complied with the environmental reporting requirements and that changes in management priorities are required to address this deficiency.
