EPA Issues Final Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule

EPA's new GHG Inventory Rule is now final and will require prompt attention by many business sectors to help ensure compliance effective January 2010.  The rule establishes the most sweeping monitoring and reporting regime in memory and will serve as the basis for future policies and legislation aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Companies and large institutions need to assess the rule applicability on a facility-by-facility basis and, if applicable, will need to integrate the new requirements into existing environmental management systems and budgets.
