The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a rule creating a mandatory national greenhouse gas reporting (GHG) program. Regulated natural gas utilities and some of their largest customers are required to report GHG emissions. The EPA website includes an online tool to help you decide if the rule applies to your company. There are also resources to help your company understand the rule.
