The Climate Registry provides application and infrastructure services to states, provinces, regions and other jurisdictions in North America to support their mandatory reporting programs. The goal is to assure that greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data is reported consistently and that the reporting process for regulated parties is streamlined as much as possible. The Registry provides the Common Framework for Mandatory Reporting to enable a jurisdiction to mange its own agency program with common tools and to customize its program as required by its regulation.
The Registry also provides services to transfer emissions data from regulatory programs to the Voluntary Registry to ensure that a company is able to consolidate all of its emissions in one place. Therefore, a company that is required to report GHG emissions to a jurisdiction that stores the data locally is not required to report the data again. A copy of the data is automatically transferred from participating jurisdictions to The Climate Registry to complete a full submission for the company.
The Registry works with Congress, U.S. EPA and Environment Canada to support federal and North American programs. It is also reaching out to work with SEMARNAT on behalf of its Mexican member states.
