Greenhouse Gas Reporting
There is no question that atmospheric greenhouse gases (GHG) have risen considerably since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, but there remains considerable debate as to what effects, if any, these gases will exert on earth's climate and biosphere.  In spite of this uncertainty, many individuals and corporations are pressing forward to identify, calculate, and report their GHG emissions.  For them, the monitoring and reporting of GHG emissions is a critical aspect of doing business, the significance of which will likely only increase as Federal, State and local governments move closer toward enacting legislation designed to reduce the emissions of such gasses into the atmosphere.

Thus, in an effort to assist those who desire to begin GHG accounting and reporting, we will attempt to provide you with some basic information to get started.  For those needing more specific information or desiring professional assistance in compiling a report, please contact us.  Since 2001, our organization has provided companies with professional assistance in filing GHG reports with the U.S. Voluntary Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Program, established by Section 1605(b) of the Energy Policy Act of 1992.  We hope that you too will turn to our Center with your GHG reporting needs.  Together, we can prepare an accurate, complete, consistent, relevant and transparent accounting of your emission and sequestration activities.
