EPA GHGRP data shows 2.7% decrease in US facility-level GHG in 2017 from 2016

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released 2017 greenhouse gas (GHG) data collected under the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP), showing overall decreases across sectors and that total US greenhouse gas emissions reported decreased by 2.7 percent from 2016 to 2017.

The Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) collects GHG data from large emitting facilities, suppliers of fossil fuels and industrial gases that result in GHG emissions when used, and facilities that inject carbon dioxide underground.

Reported emissions from large power plants declined 4.5% since 2016, and 19.7% since 2011.

This is the seventh year of full data collection for most sectors under the Program, and more than 8,000 large facilities reported 2017 GHG emissions to EPA.

EPA will hold an informational webinar on 24 October to demonstrate its large facility greenhouse gas data publication tool known as “FLIGHT,” including new features and a tutorial on common searches. FLIGHT allows users to view reported data by region, industry, or greenhouse gas; and download lists.
