Description

Alberta’s Specified Gas Reporting Program has collected facility greenhouse gas emissions data since 2003, and is a core component of Alberta’s 2008 Climate Change Strategy. In 2005 (for 2004 emissions data collection), Alberta harmonized its Specified Gas Reporting Program with the Government of...
