Annual Environmental Report

The Annual Environmental Report (AER) is a requirement for all EPA licensed facilities.  The content of the AER should give a concise summary of the environmental performance of the site for the previous reporting year as well as a record of on-going improvements on the licensed site. 

The EPA have published a Draft AER Guidance which is intended to assist in standardising the reporting format of the AER for IPPC and Waste licensed facilities. 

The AER/PRTR reporting Annual Environmental Reporting Website section of the EPA website facilitates the electronic reporting of environmental information through the upload of the AER and the PRTR Emissions Reporting Workbook in PDF format. 

  • Releases of pollutants and off-site transfers of waste by facilities operating in relevant industrial sectors will be reported to the EPA on an annual basis via the sector specific PRTR Emissions Reporting Workbook.  
  • The National PRTR Website contains information on the emissions and waste transfers of all Irish facilities that exceed the reporting thresholds set out in the PRTR Regulations.
  • The European PRTR provides similar information for the wider European Union, including Ireland.
