The Climate Registry is a nonprofit organization that provides meaningful information to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Climate Registry establishes consistent, transparent standards throughout North America for businesses and governments to calculate, verify and publicly report their carbon footprints in a single, unified registry.
The Registry is committed to:
- Utilizing best practices in greenhouse gas emissions reporting
- Establishing a common data infrastructure for voluntary and mandatory reporting and emissions reduction programs
- Minimizing the burden on Members, Directors and Native Sovereign Nations
- Providing an opportunity for Members to establish an emissions baseline and document early action
- Developing a recognized platform for credible and consistent greenhouse gas emissions reporting
- Promoting full and public disclosure of greenhouse gas emissions while respecting business confidentiality
At its January 2009 meeting, The Climate Registry’s Board of Directors unanimously adopted a policy regarding federal reporting programs in North America. The board strongly endorses that any federal greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting and regulatory programs in North America should partner with The Climate Registry as a cost effective central repository or clearinghouse for reporting and/or tracking GHG data.
