Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program
Certain large facilities and transportation fuel suppliers must report their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to Ecology. Owners or operators of the following are required to report:
Mobile source fleets are not required to report their GHG emissions.
Preliminary Washington Greenhouse Gas Reporting Data for 2012 and 2013
Because of multiple inquiries, a summary of Washington's Greenhouse Gas Reporting program emissions data is available below. This data is preliminary and has not been fully verified by Ecology.
Through Winter 2015, Ecology proposes to amend this rule.
Starting with the 2013 emissions year:
Facilities report GHG emissions based on EPA's GHG reporting program. Washington's Applicable emissions and calculation methodologies are identical to the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) with a few exceptions. The main difference is that Washington has a lower reporting threshold of 10,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) per calendar year. Washington's threshold also includes carbon dioxide emissions from biogenic sources, while EPA's does not.

Transportation fuel suppliers report GHG emissions based on the information they already submit to the Washington Department of Licensing (DOL). The only organizations that must report are those with active fuel tax licenses that supply enough applicable fuels to meet or exceed 10,000 metric tons of CO2 per year.

There is an annual reporting fee. The fee is based on Ecology's costs to administer the program, and the number of facilities and suppliers reporting that year.
