Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Image depicting a warming earth inside a greenhouseIowa Code section 455B.131, as amended by Senate File 485 in 2007, requires the department to include estimates of emissions of some greenhouse gases in its construction permitting and emissions inventory programs. This bill also instructs the department to create a voluntary greenhouse gas registry for purposes of tracking and crediting companies in Iowa that reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases or that provide increased energy efficiency.

Important information about which greenhouses gases need to be quantified, tools to help you complete the emissions estimates, and guidance on reporting requirements will be added to this web site as they are developed.
