Elizabeth Elbel503-229-6476

DEQ proposes changes to rules requiring certain businesses to report greenhouse gas emissions. The proposed revisions would reduce the reporting burden to sources who meet the requirements for exemption; provide clarity and uniformity related to greenhouse gas reporting methods and emission factors; incorporate reporting protocols, including necessary data elements and quantification requirements into rule; update Oregon’s list of greenhouse gases subject to reporting to ensure consistency with federal greenhouse gas reporting rules; and improve clarity of the rules by following plain language standards where possible.
