EMA chairman: Emissions reporting should be mandatory

The Government is considering legislative changes to make greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting mandatory.

To this end the Environmental Management Authority (EMA) is currently finalising proposals with the Ministry of Planning and Development. Until the legislation comes into effect, the EMA will continue to engage companies on a voluntary basis to provide the relevant board.

In n an interview, the EMA chairman Nadra Nathai-Gyan called on companies in the energy sector to implement a robust environmental social safeguard (ESS) policy to guide the management of environmental and social risks and impacts of projects. The watchdog environmental body said this policy will assist companies to deliver enhanced environmental performance and improve the communities where the respective companies are based.
