Government regulation of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) in the U.S. is on its way. Last month, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released its proposed GHG Reporting Rule, which would require manufacturers, utilities, fuel suppliers and vehicle manufacturers to report their total annual GHG emissions starting in 2010.The rule covers up to 90% of GHG emissions sources in the U.S. In addition, the data generated by the rule will instruct a variety of new climate change policies under federal consideration, including cap and trade, regulation of GHG emissions under the Clean Air Act and carbon fees. Given the significance of this policy shift for all business, The Conference Board is presenting a webcast dialogue with the EPA to discuss specific aspects of the rule, and its implications for business including how the data can be used.

This webcast will discuss:

  • Whether companies currently doing reporting under a voluntary reporting scheme (e.g. Carbon Disclosure Project) need to change how they collect data
  • How the rule addresses facility vs. company level reporting
  • Coordination between filing to the EPA and the SEC, especially to satisfy investor interest in GHG emissions data
  • How the data can help a company subject to a shareholder resolution on climate change or litigation
  • How to comment on the rule
