Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting Requirement

Vehicle and engine manufacturers are required to report annual GHG emissions to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Vehicle and engine manufacturers outside of the light-duty sector are required to report carbon dioxide emissions levels beginning with Model Year 2011 and other GHG emissions in subsequent model years. This includes heavy trucks, motorcycles, and non-road engines and equipment. The reporting requirement also applies to suppliers of fossil fuels or industrial GHGs and facilities that emit at least 25,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year. For more information, see EPA's Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program website. (Reference 40 CFR 86-90, 94, 98, 1033, 1039, 1042, 1045, 1048, 1051, 1054, and 1065)
