ASRS compliance

Australian Sustainability Reporting Standards (ASRS) compliance

Navigating the path to climate action and compliance

In an era where climate action is no longer optional but a mandatory part of business operations, the Australian Sustainability Reporting Standards (ASRS) represent a pivotal shift towards integrating climate-related financial disclosures into corporate reporting. Currently in its exposure draft phase, ASRS mandates a structured and comprehensive approach for companies to communicate their impact on climate change, manage risks, and disclose their climate action practices.

At 100% Renewables, we are at the forefront of assisting businesses to navigate the complexities of ASRS compliance. As a consultancy specialising in decarbonisation, we offer services designed to meet the ASRS requirements and to position your company as a leader in climate action and resilience

Our ASRS compliance services

Our comprehensive suite of services is tailored to support your business at every step of the ASRS compliance journey.

Carbon footprint services

Understanding your carbon footprint is the foundation of ASRS compliance. We provide detailed assessments of Scope 1, Scope 2, and importantly, Scope 3 emissions, equipping your business with the data needed for accurate reporting and effective carbon management strategies.

We conduct thorough assessments of your direct and indirect emissions, using the latest methodologies and standards to ensure accuracy and relevance. Recognising that each business has unique needs and challenges, 100% Renewables also offers tailored carbon calculation tools designed to empower our clients with precision and autonomy in managing their carbon footprints. Our tools are user-friendly, easy to use and can be integrated with your existing IT systems. Beyond calculation, we develop tailored strategies to reduce your carbon footprint, aligning with best practices and innovation in carbon management.

Climate risks and opportunities identification and management

ASRS mandates that businesses transparently disclose their processes for identifying, assessing, and managing climate-related risks and opportunities, alongside detailing the financial implications of these risks and opportunities. This requirement underscores the need for businesses to understand and mitigate risks associated with climate change, including both physical impacts and transition risks as the economy shifts towards a low-carbon future.

We guide businesses in pinpointing and evaluating both physical risks, from extreme weather events to long-term climate patterns, and transition risks, such as policy changes and market shifts. Beyond identifying risks, we work with you to develop robust plans to mitigate these risks, safeguarding your operations and supply chains from the adverse effects of climate change.

Recognising that climate change also presents unique opportunities, we assist companies in identifying potential advantages. From tapping into new markets and technologies to enhancing your brand through climate action leadership, we help you transform sustainability challenges into business opportunities.

Target setting and transition planning

Achieving ASRS compliance and climate action leadership requires precise target setting and strategic transition planning. At 100% Renewables, we guide businesses to set achievable climate targets based on scientific benchmarks and develop bespoke transition plans. Our services cover everything from emissions reduction and renewable energy investments to strategic carbon offset purchasing, offering a comprehensive strategy for climate action.

We create tailored roadmaps that reflect your operational context, decarbonisation objectives, and stakeholder expectations, ensuring transition planning integrates climate action deep into your business strategy. Our transition planning goes beyond environmental compliance; we integrate climate action into the core of your business strategy, ensuring that your transition plan supports long-term growth and resilience. By involving all parts of your organisation and engaging external stakeholders, we ensure that your transition plans are actionable, with clear steps, timelines, and metrics for success, providing clarity and accountability throughout the process.

Assurance and reporting support

As the requirements for assurance evolve, our team provides expert guidance to ensure your disclosures adhere to both limited and reasonable assurance standards as mandated over time. We assist in crafting disclosures that span governance, risk management, and emissions reporting, aiming for your ASRS submissions to be thorough, trustworthy, and in full compliance. It’s important to highlight that while we offer specialised consulting services to prepare for these assurance processes, the actual assurance verification is conducted by third parties, such as auditors.

Why start early?

The phased implementation of ASRS offers businesses time to prepare, but early action is key. Developing robust data collection and reporting systems, aligning internal processes with sustainability goals, and engaging stakeholders in your sustainability journey takes time. Starting now ensures a seamless transition to ASRS compliance, positioning your business as a climate action leader.

Savings from emissions reduction projects are put back into the fund to enable further projects to be implemented.
