Among other provisions, E.O. 13514 requires agencies to measure, report, and reduce their GHG emissions. Section 9(a) of E.O. 13514 directed the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP), in coordination with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of Defense (DoD), General Services Administration (GSA), Department of the Interior (DOI), Department of Commerce (DOC), and other agencies as appropriate, to develop recommended Federal GHG reporting and accounting procedures. On April 5, 2010, DOE– FEMP submitted the final recommendations on Federal GHG reporting and accounting procedures to the Chair, Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ). Section 5(a) of E.O. 13514 directed that the Chair of CEQ issue guidance for Federal GHG accounting and reporting. Based on the final recommendations, CEQ has prepared a draft guidance document. CEQ is committed to open government principles and leading by example to ensure that the Federal Government is transparent in its processes for accounting and reporting of Federal GHG emissions. The Federal Government seeks to continually improve both the quality of data and methods necessary for calculating GHG emissions. Over time, additional requirements, methodologies and procedures will be included in revisions to this document and supporting documents to improve the Federal Government’s overall ability to accurately account for and report GHG emissions. In particular, while a detailed approach to accepted and peerreviewed life cycle methodologies is beyond the scope of the current version of this guidance document, the Federal Government is interested in including such approaches in future versions, and may request comment on inclusion of life cycle methodologies in future versions of this Guidance document. CEQ provides this draft guidance for public review and comment to ensure accessibility of Federal accounting and reporting requirements and to enhance the quality of public involvement in governmental decisions relating to the environment.

The Draft Guidance is accompanied by a separate Draft Technical Support Document for Federal GHG Accounting and Reporting (TSD), which provides detailed information on Federal inventory reporting requirements and calculation methodologies. Specifically, CEQ is interested in comments on section/ chapter 4 regarding renewable energy. CEQ will seek public comment on this draft guidance for 30 days.
