United States Regulations

Regulatory Update

While most of the regulatory activity pertaining to commercial and industrial consumption and reporting is taking place at the state and municipal levels, the Federal Government is actively engaged in developing guidance and rules, such as the EPA’s ENERGY STAR program, GHG Reporting Program, and Too Good To Waste community food waste prevention tools. The Federal government is continuously debating a myriad of sustainability and energy market legislative proposals that would potentially impact commercial and industrial organizations. Meanwhile, the global community is ramping up pressure on nations to enact carbon disclosure policies, as evidenced by the recent COP21 (Paris Agreement).

Learn more about increasing Federal and global oversight of energy consumption and reporting in our blog post, COP21: Reflecting On What It Means and Webinar, Public Reporting Today And In The Future.
