Reporting Industrial Emissions
Reliable and timely emissions data is essential to an effective greenhouse gas emission reduction program.
Facilities in B.C. that emit 10,000 tonnes or more of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions per year are required to report their greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, operations with emissions of 25,000 tonnes or greater are required to have their emission reports verified by a third party. Verification helps provide confidence in the accuracy and consistency of reported emissions data.
The Greenhouse Gas Emission Reporting Regulation provides the statutory framework for operations reporting emissions for the 2016 reporting year. The previous Reporting Regulation (repealed Dec. 31, 2015) will continue to apply for the 2015 reporting year.
More information can be found in the Reporting Regulation Guidance Document.
