California Registry members were instrumental in making the California Registry a success and because of their work, they are well prepared to manage and reduce GHG emissions. Now, they are faced with an exciting opportunity to advance their work and recognition to an international level. The Climate Registry welcomes the leadership, knowledge and experience that California Registry members will bring to its community.

“Reporting on an annual basis is not only an effective way to measure the emissions associated with our operation, but it is a way to see where opportunities for improvement exist as well as whether or not we have been successful in our reduction practices. Annual reporting also ensures that mandatory requirements are being met.”

Cheri Chastain
Sustainability Coordinator
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

“Shell joined CCAR and The Registry because we believe accurately counting emissions in one agreed to manner is the key starting point of any effective GHG regulation. We believed at the time and still believe that CCAR and The Registry are the gold standard for reporting emissions.

We also wanted to influence the states and eventually the federal government to count the same way. CCAR’s influence with California and The Registry’s influence with the states has delivered on this desire. This influence has been earned by the quality of work the organization has done to date.”

Randy Armstrong
Environmental Issues Director
Shell Oil Company

“Bentley Prince Street believes that “green” claims are so prevalent in products lately that customers find it hard to determine what is true and what is mere advertising. Creating a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventory and participating in a single North American GHG Registry became a powerful statement to Bentley Prince Street’s customers and the marketplace that real GHG management and reduction are necessary for future business.”
