Changes to Ontario’s Greenhouse Gas Reporting Regulation (Reg. 452/09)
The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) had proposed amendments to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Regulation and the related guide.
The amendments include:
- Reducing the reporting threshold from 25,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) to 10,000 tonnes CO2e.
- Establishing a reporting threshold of 200 litres of fuel for liquid petroleum fuel distributors and suppliers.
- The addition of 7 sources that will require reporting for the 2016 emissions year.
- Establishing category of sources that will reporting.
These will not be subject to verification or potential compliance requirements under a cap and trade program, and updates to the Greenhouse Guide Reporting Guideline regarding calculation methods and other reporting requirements.
This proposal was posted on Ontario’s Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR) Registry for a 45 day public review and comments were accepted until January 19, 2015.
