Facility Greenhouse Gas Reporting
Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Program
Accurate tracking of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is an important part of assessing Canada’s overall environmental performance. In March 2004, the Government of Canada announced the introduction of the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Program (GHGRP).
Facility GHG emissions reporting contributes to the development, implementation and evaluation of climate change and energy use policies and strategies by providing a more precise picture of the sources and amounts of GHG emissions from Canada's largest emitters.
The GHGRP applies only to the largest industrial GHG emitters in Canada. All facilities that emit the equivalent of 50 000 tonnes (50 kilotonnes) or more of GHGs in carbon dioxide equivalent units (CO2 eq) per year are required to submit a report. Facilities with emissions falling below the reporting threshold of 50 kilotonnes per year can voluntarily report their GHG emissions.
