Mandatory GHG Reporting - Reported Emissions
This page updated January 11, 2013
GHG Emissions Data for 2011Revisions to the Regulation for the Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, approved in 2010, went into effect on January 1, 2012. Data collection under the revised reporting regulation began with 2011 data reported in 2012. The links below provide a summary of 2011 GHG data reporting, emissions trends based on the mandatory reporting data, and the 2011 data spreadsheet for individual reporting facilities, electric power entities, and fuel suppliers.

Historical Emissions Data for 2008 through 2010Data are provided below for the reporting years 2008 through 2010. After that time, ARB revised the GHG reporting regulation to support the cap-and-trade program and to harmonize with the U.S. EPA greenhouse gas reporting program.

Overview - Historical Data for 2008 through 2010
Under California’s mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program, California's largest industrial facilities reported their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for years 2008, 2009 and 2010. Facility operators certified their 2008 emissions data reports were complete and accurate. Emissions data reports for 2009 and 2010 were certified by operators and also verified by third-party verifiers accredited by the Air Resources Board. Electricity retail providers and marketers reported electricity transaction data for 2008, 2009 and 2010. Transaction reports for 2009 and 2010 were also verified by third party verifiers. The summaries of reported GHG emissions and electricity transaction data are available at the links above.
The 2010, 2009 and 2008 GHG emissions reports include data from the following industrial sectors: cement plants, oil refineries, hydrogen plants, electricity generating facilities, cogeneration facilities, other large stationary combustion sources, and electricity retail providers and marketers. Only sources that met specified emission thresholds were subject to reporting under the regulation. Oil refineries, hydrogen plants, and large stationary combustion facilities emitting ≥ 25,000 metric tons (MT) of CO2 per year were subject to reporting. The threshold for electricity generating and cogeneration facilities was ≥1megawatt generating capacity and ≥2,500 MT CO2 per year.
