Q433. What is EPA’s plan for incorporating the GHG Reporting Program data into the U.S. GHG Inventory?
A433. EPA will take a measured approach to incorporating the GHG Reporting Program data into the Inventory. Key factors include the coverage within a sector, consistency of definitions, the availability of a time series, and transparency. EPA is evaluating the data collected through the GHGRP, and will begin incorporating specific data elements in the next Inventory submission. The inclusion of GHGRP data into the Inventory will be a multi-year process. Over time, EPA will use additional data elements from the GHGRP to improve the accuracy of the Inventory.
