Course Materials

This CLE course will prepare companies and counsel to meet the requirements for the GHG reporting process. The panel will offer their guidance for dealing with the EPA’s new reporting rule and offer carbon accounting strategies to comply with the rule.


Under the EPA’s Mandatory Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting rule, large GHG emitters must report emissions beginning for the year 2010. Though the rule was effective Dec. 2009, the rule continues to evolve. On Mar. 22, 2010, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson signed four new proposals to amend the rule.

Are your clients ready to meet the carbon accounting challenges? As companies begin to compile information, most need help with the legal assessment, understanding whether the rule applies to them, and how to ensure compliance.

Counsel and other advisors must have a thorough understanding of the GHG reporting rule and its implications for their companies and clients—and how to account for carbon emissions and comply with the EPA’s new rule.

Listen as our authoritative panel of environmental attorneys and corporate advisors examines the EPA’s new reporting rule and offer strategies for carbon accounting to comply with the rule.
