Ministry of Environment

Reporting Regulation – Greenhouse Gas Reduction (Cap and Trade) Act

Emissions Estimator

The ministry has prepared a GHG Emissions Estimator that can be used to estimate greenhouse gas emissions from a facility in advance of comprehensive data collection and compilation. The calculator can be used to provide an operator with a preliminary indication as to whether the facility may have obligations under the Reporting Regulation, in particular whether they may have a registration requirement.

Fuel use, raw material use, and production data are entered by the facility operator into the spreadsheet. Greenhouse gas emission estimates are then automatically generated using standard emission factors.
