Data from the Clean Energy Regulator shows that AGL Energy generated 43.4 million tonnes of carbon emissions in 2016-17, which equates to about eight per cent of Australia’s emissions. Rival utility EnergyAustralia is the nation’s second-biggest carbon polluter, with emissions totalling 21.7 million tonnes in 2016-17. AGL is believed to be spending around $A23m a year on advertising to promote its environmental credentials, yet its emissions have increased by five million tonnes under current CEO Andy Vesey.
