GHG deadline extended

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a final rule that extends the deadline for reporting 2010 data under the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting Program to Sept. 30, 2011. The original deadline was March 31, 2011.

Under the GHG Reporting Program entities required to submit data must register with the electronic GHG reporting tool (e-GGRT) no later than Aug. 1, 2011.

EPA says the extension will allow the agency 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.

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 collected through e-GGRT is intended to help guide policy decisions and the development of future programs which the Agency might implement to reduce these emissions.
