Annual Emmission Reporting (AER) for GHGs, NPRI, TRA and ChemTRAC

Home » Annual emissions reporting

Facilities, in Ontario and across Canada, are required to report annual emissions of pollutants (greenhouse gas emissions inventory reporting [provincial ghg emissions reporting in Ontario and federal ghg reporting] and National Pollutant Release Inventory [NPRI]). Who needs to report, to which reporting scheme, what to report, and how, can be very tricky if you lack expertise and experience in the various reporting legal requirements, including NPRI reporting requirements.

DiGiSci can help you navigate these complex and confusing legal requirements and ensure that you produce accurate, defensible results. We have helped clients with annual reporting, in Ontario and across Canada, for over 20 years, including ghg inventory reporting.

GHG annual emissions reporting, NPRI annual reporting and Toxics Reduction Program reporting is normally required by 1 June this year. For facilities in the City of Toronto, the more stringent reporting requirements, under ChemTrac, are required by 30 June, and provide these services as a ChemTrac emission reporting consultant.

How we help you in emissions reporting:

  • Step 1 – We have an initial consultation with the client. At this time we set up a site visit to familiarize ourselves with processes and activities at the facility – this enables us to provide a cost estimate for the work.
  • Step 2 – Gather chemical data from SDSs, quantities of product used, and, information from equipment specifications.
  • Step 3 – Perform calculations to estimate usages and emissions (emissions release inventory) from information gathered during step 2.
  • Step 4 – Assist with reporting to the on-line SWIM system (GHGs, NPRI, TRA) or City of Toronto (ChemTrac) systems.
