Guide for designing mandatory greenhouse gas reporting programs (Inglês)

Over the past decade, greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting programs have emerged at the regional, national, and subnational levels to provide information on emission sources and trends. As more jurisdictions plan to design and implement these programs, this report draws on the experience of 13 existing and proposed programs to guide policymakers and practitioners in developing GHG reporting programs. Businesses, industry associations, civil society, and funding agencies may also find this guide useful in facilitating their participation in the development of a reporting program. GHG reporting programs can be voluntary or mandatory. Unlike a voluntary program (in which participation is voluntary), a mandatory program obligates entities (companies and facilities) to report their emissions at regular intervals. This report focuses on mandatory reporting programs, but much of the information can be applied to the design of voluntary programs. Mandatory reporting programs provide credible information about GHG emissions and their sources, which can help establish a strong foundation to support mitigation policies. These programs also enable governments and industries to understand their emissions-related risks and opportunities so they can efficiently focus on mitigation activities that will produce the greatest GHG reductions. Mandatory reporting programs bring consistency and enhanced accuracy in reporting entity-level emission through rigorous calculation and quality management methods.
