Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP)

GHGRP Emissions Ranges

The GHGRP provides a comprehensive dataset that can be used to determine the number of facilities at various emissions levels in many industry sectors. The GHGRP can also be used to determine the total GHG emissions from individual facilities, including emissions from fossil fuel combustion and other processes.

Figure 1: Percentage of All Reporting Facilities at Various Emission Ranges (2019)


Seventy-eight percent of reporting facilities had emissions less than 250,000 metric tons CO2e. In 2019, the 658 largest-emitting facilities—those emitting more than one million metric tons CO2e—accounted for 1.96 billion metric tons CO2e. These emissions represent 68.7 percent of the total 2.85 billion metric tons CO2e reported. These high-emitting facilities are mainly power plants, but they also include facilities in all other direct emitter sectors.

You can use FLIGHT to list and sort facilities based on total reported emissions. This tool also allows you to sort facilities by specific industry types.
