ACC agrees on proposed GHG rule

The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) proposed mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting might sound ominous to energy-intensive industries but the American Chemistry Council (ACC) is actually very supportive of this.

ACC says a US reporting system such as this is needed as a basis for discussion, development and implementation of a national climate policy.
"Consistent with our forward-looking approach to climate issues, ACC member companies track greenhouse gas emissions data and report it to ACC as a requirement of membership under our Responsible Care® program."

Emissions from ACC member companies between 1990 and 2007 already fell 13.2% exceeding Kyoto Protocol Requirements, the group said. Companies under the Responsible Care program have publicly reported their GHG emission data since 2005.
