Reporting Requirements for Disclosure 305-7

The reporting organization shall report the following information

Significant air emissions, in kilograms or multiples, for each of the following: »

i. NOX ii. SOX iii. Persistent organic pollutants (POP) iv. Volatile organic compounds (VOC) v. Hazardous air pollutants (HAP) vi. Particulate matter (PM) vii. Other standard categories of air emissions identified in relevant regulations

Please see the General requirements for reporting the management approach

Specific reporting requirements for this disclosure:
  • When reporting on GHG emissions targets, the reporting organization shall explain whether offsets were used to meet the targets, including the type, amount, criteria or scheme of which the offsets are part.
When compiling the information specified in Disclosure 305-7, the reporting organization shall select one of the following approaches for calculating significant air emissions:
  • Direct measurement of emissions (such as online analyzers);
  • Calculation based on site-specific data;
  • Calculation based on published emission factors;
  • Estimation. If estimations are used due to a lack of default figures, the organization shall indicate the basis on which figures were estimated.
