At all levels of government, there is a mandate to protect and improve the environment. To this end, many government agencies and ministries require facilities operating in their area to report on specific environmental issues they feel are of concern (air/water emissions, hazardous waste, sewer releases, spills etc). This enables the various levels of government to assess concerns and identify program requirements more accurately, in addition to monitoring the effectiveness of existing programs.
The result is that facilities (industrial, commercial and institutional) are faced with a broad range of reporting requirements, each with a different reporting threshold and a different focus. For example, at the federal level, Canada has the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) and Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP). Provincially, requirements vary but generally include air emissions (chemical and greenhouse gas), water emissions and toxic substance reporting and planning. And at the municipal level, depending on the jurisdiction, there are bylaws related to water (sewer-use), air emissions and toxic chemical use.
