The EPA reports that it has given a six-month extension to those operations/businesses that will be required to report their greenhouse gas (GHG) emission information. Originally the deadline had been at the end of April. It will now be September 30, 2011.
According to the EPA’s website, “EPA’s GHG Reporting Program, launched in October 2009, requires the reporting of GHG data from large emission sources (emitting over 25,000 metric tons) 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.”
