KNAUF AUSTRALIA PTY LTD application to have their Greenhouse and energy information withheld from publication

Luke Bacon made this Freedom of Information request to Clean Energy Regulator

The request was successful.

From: Luke Bacon

Delivered

Dear Clean Energy Regulator,

Greenhouse and energy information for KNAUF AUSTRALIA PTY LTD has not been published with other organisations in the 2014-15 greenhouse and energy information.

Find their empty listing on this page:
http://www.cleanenergyregulator.gov.au/N...

There is a footnote next to their name (3) stating:

> The greenhouse and energy information for this corporation has been withheld from publication in relation to an application made under section 25 of the NGER Act (which relates to matters having a commercial value or trade secrets).

Could you please provide their application documents?

If possible I would appreciate if you could treat this as an informal request. Otherwise please treat this as a formal FOI request.

Yours faithfully,

Luke Bacon

Dear Mr Bacon,

Knauf has withdrawn their application made under section 25 of the NGER Act to suppress from publication their 2014-15 emissions data, which was the subject of your FOI application. The effect of the withdrawal is that the 2014-15 data will be published. Given this new development, would you still want to proceed with your application? Your urgent response is appreciated.

With kind regards

FOI Contact Officer

Dear Mr Bacon,

I would like to update you that we are waiting a response from the company for our third-party consultation later, i.e. whether they have an objection to the release of all or part of the document in question, and if they object its release what their reason is.

With kind regards

Hi FOI Contact Officer,

Thanks for your reply and sorry for the delay in mine!

Do you know when the information will be published?

I would still like to go forward with my request for the original application, whether or not to information itself is soon to be published.

Thanks for your help and suggestions :)

Dear Mr Bacon,

Further to my email below, we don’t have an exact date for publishing the company's emissions data, but it is expected to be in early May, when we will be republishing the NGER data more generally. I hope this helps

With kind regards
