GHG Details

This is where the “rollup” is presented, which provides your total CO2 equivalent emissions (excluding biogenic) and biogenic CO2 emissions. The third total presented in the “roll up” is the quantity of CO2 equivalent for suppliers. Once all subpart data is entered, you will be able to see a comprehensive overview of your emissions with this calculator.

Click the VIEW GHG DETAILS to see the underlying details on the metric tons of GHG, by gas and by subpart, along with the Global Warming Potentials (GWPs) that go into the calculations.

Viewing the GHG details allows you to see the individual subpart components that were tallied into the roll up totals. For more information about the GHG Details page and the logic underlying GHG rollups visit our GHG Rollup Requirements Page.

Submit an Annual Report

Once all subparts are completed and the "Validation Messages" are addressed to your satisfaction, you are ready to prepare and submit your annual report. Click the GO button in the FINAL REVIEW and REPORT SUBMISSIONS section to begin the submission process.

Cessation of Operations

By selecting this reason for discontinuing the reporter is indicating that all applicable GHG-emitting processes and operations ceased to operate in the current reporting year (98.2(i)(3)), and that you discontinued complying with Part 98 monitoring in the current reporting year when operations ceased. This reasoning also indicates that you intend to discontinue complying with Part 98 after the current reporting year. This notification does not impact your reporting obligations for the current reporting year, and you must resume compliance with Part 98 for any calendar year that your operations resume and become applicable again. For more information, please see the exceptions of Cessation of Operations as outlined under §98.2(i)(3).

Alteration of Operations 

By selecting this reason, the reporter is indicating that all applicable operations and processes changed such that the entire facility (all subparts) no longer meets the definition(s) of source category(s) as specified in the applicable subpart(s). For more information, please see the exceptions under §98.2(i)(5).

Facility Has Merged

By selecting this reason, the reporter is indicating that the entire facility or supplier has been merged into another facility or supplier that already reports to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP). If you select this reason, you will be required to enter the six-digit GHGRP identification number(s) of the facility (or facilities) where these activities will now be reported.  For more information, please see the exceptions under §98.2(i)(6).

Exiting the Program

By selecting this reason, the reporter is indicating the entire facility has reported emissions of less than 25,000 metric tons CO2e per year for five consecutive years or less than 15,000 metric tons CO2e per year for three consecutive years for all subparts. In either case, the owner or operator of the facility must submit a notification to the Administrator that announces the cessation of reporting. The notification shall be submitted no later than March 31st of the year immediately following the fifth consecutive year of emissions less than 25,000 tons CO2e per year or March 31st of the year immediately following the third consecutive year of emissions less than 15,000 tons CO2e per year. The owner or operator must maintain the corresponding records required under §98.3(g) for each of the consecutive years in question and retain such records for three years following the year that reporting was discontinued. The owner or operator must resume reporting if annual emissions in any future calendar year increase to 25,000 metric tons CO2e per year or more.

Not Submitting an Annual Report for the Current Reporting Year

If your facility is not reporting because it has not been subject to Part 98 in any year starting in 2011, ceased operation in a prior year, exited the program in a prior year, or otherwise discontinued reporting for one of the reasons described above, your facility will be identified in the DATA REPORTING tab under the "FACILITIES NOT EXPECTED TO REPORT" section for the current Reporting Year.
