Matrix of GHG Reporting Programs in North America

To assist Canadian members in understanding the scope and general applicability of greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting regulations across North America, NCASI was asked to prepare a spreadsheet summarizing information on seven of these regulations or programs/guidelines, including the degree to which forest products industry-relevant issues are characterized and/or where industry aspects must be reported in a certain manner. WCI, USEPA, and Environment Canada regulations/programs are summarized, along with provincial regulations for BC, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec. By reviewing the information provided in the spreadsheet, the user can identify the degree to which a given program may be similar or different from another.
