Once you have entered your GHG data using the e-GGRT web-forms, you are ready to generate, then submit your annual GHG report.

To begin, log in to e-GGRT to reach the e-GGRT home page.

From the e-GGRT home page, click the DATA REPORTING tab and follow the steps below.

Step 1. Select a facility or supplier

To select a facility or supplier for which to generate and submit an annual GHG report, find the facility or supplier in the REPORTING FACILITIES table and click OPEN.

Step 2. Generate your annual GHG report

To generate an annual GHG report for the selected facility or supplier, find the SUBMIT ANNUAL REPORT table and click on REPORT SUBMISSION. Clicking on REPORT SUBMISSION begins the process of generating an annual GHG report - clicking this button does NOT submit your report. You would also use this button if you have made changes in e-GGRT to your data and wish to generate and submit a revision to your annual GHG report. Note you can delete Annual Reports that have not been certified by clicking the red "X" icon in the "SUBMIT ANNUAL REPORT" section.

If you are not submitting an annual report for this facility or supplier, use the radio buttons near the bottom of the screen to indicate that your facility is NOT required to submit a report.

On the following page, your report status will show as "Not Generated". Click the GENERATE REPORT AND FINAL VERIFICATION SUMMARY button to begin. E-GGRT will start the process of generating your annual GHG report. The process generally takes less than 1 minute and you can wait for the process to complete, or you may leave e-GGRT and return at a later time.

Step 3. Review your annual report

You may generate your report, review the XML and/or HTML report, correct reported data as necessary, and repeat as many times as you wish. The GENERATE REPORT process creates an annual GHG report for your review, but does not submit any data to EPA. If you do not want to proceed to Submit and Certify (Step 4), click the BACK button to return to the Facility Overview page.

Once the process is complete, e-GGRT will indicate that your report is Ready for Review. e-GGRT will indicate that your report is Ready for Review. Within this page you have a number of buttons or links which provide different ways to review your reported data or inputs including:

  • Report:  this button will open a browser window with a textual presentation of your reported data suitable for printing
  • XML: this button will open your default XML viewer, usually a browser window and present your reported data in XML format
  • Download XML: this button will create an XML version of your reported data which can be saved
  • Public Report: this button will open a browser window with a textual presentation of your reported data which will eventually be released to the public (similar to your full report but without any data which is considered confidential business information) 
  • Public XML: this button will open a viewing window presenting the reported data that will eventually be released to the public in an XML format
  • Trend Report by CO2e: this button presents a graphical comparison CO2e emissions from your facility by year (for the IVT sandbox this will only show one years data)
  • Trend Report By Gas: this button presents a graphical comparison emissions by gas and year (for the IVT sandbox this will only show one years data)
  • Input File by HTML: this link will open a browser window with a textual presentation of your inputs data suitable for printing
  • Input File by XML: this button will open your default XML viewer, and present your inputs data in XML format
  • Input File by Zip: this button will allow you to download a zip file that includes your inputs in both HTML report and XML form

Step 4. Submit and Certify your annual GHG report

To submit and certify your annual GHG report to EPA, click the SUBMIT button near the bottom of the page.

Please note that clicking on the SUBMIT button will submit your annual GHG report to EPA. You will not be permitted to cancel the submission - you will be required to certify/sign the report before you will be permitted to submit a subsequent revision to your annual GHG report.

Before e-GGRT begins the certification / submission process e-GGRT checks if you have included all the subparts reporting in the prior reporting year again in the current reporting year.  If you have dropped a subpart which was reported last year, you will have to provide additional information to explain why that subpart was dropped as shown on the following screen.  If you have not dropped a subpart you will continue directly to the certification page.
