GHG Reports Now Due Sept. 30

Affected companies should register with e-GGRT by Aug. 1 and then will have another month before submitting greenhouse gas emissions data.

The Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program deadline for 2010 data has been moved to Sept. 30, 2011, according to a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency press release.

The original deadline was March 31. EPA previously announced its intent to extend the deadline at the beginning of the month.

Under the program, entities required to submit data must register with the electronic GHG reporting tool (e-GGRT) no later than 60 days before the reporting deadline. With this reporting deadline extension, the new deadline for registering with e-GGRT is Aug. 1.

The extension will allow EPA to further test the system that facilities will use to submit data and give industry the opportunity to test the tool, provide feedback, and have sufficient time to become familiar with the tool prior to reporting.

In addition to the nine rulemakings necessary to comply with congressional direction for the program, over the past two years EPA has established a public help center that operates through its website and efficient mechanisms for stakeholders to get answers from EPA experts to detailed technical questions. EPA has also conducted training sessions with each affected sector and held hundreds of meetings with stakeholders across the country.

EPA’s GHG Reporting Program, launched in October 2009, requires the reporting of GHG data from large emission sources across a range of industry sectors, as well as suppliers of products that would emit GHGs if released or combusted. The data will help guide policy decisions and the development of future programs which the agency might implement to reduce these emissions. It will also help industries and businesses find ways to be more efficient and save money.
