Closed consultations: Changes to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program
Consultations about proposed changes to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) to apply in 2022 and 2023.
Current status: Closed
Opened on August 10, 2022 and closed on September 9, 2022.
The Government of Canada consulted with stakeholders regarding changes to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) intended to maximize the utility, consistency and transparency of facility greenhouse gas data being collected and published. The objective was to receive stakeholder feedback on proposed changes to reporting requirements for 2022 and 2023.
We have published our response to the comments received. The response document summarizes key issues raised and adjustments to various requirements as well as the path forward for 2022 and 2023 reporting.
The Notice with respect to reporting of greenhouse gases (GHGs) for 2022 and 2023 will be published in the Canada Gazette. The notice describes who must report and what information must be reported by June 1, 2022, and includes changes to reporting requirements pursued following consultations.
Who was the focus of this consultation
We invited all Canadians involved in estimating and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for facilities and groups who may be monitoring these emissions (e.g. other government jurisdictions) to take part in this consultation.
