  • Ohio seeks climate data from businesses, other groups

    Columbus, Ohio (AP)

    Ohio environmental regulators have asked 1,000 businesses and organizations to volunteer emissions information to a group tracking greenhouse gases across North America.

    Ohio Environmental Protection Agency Director Chris Korleski recently sent letters to the businesses, asking them to report the information to Climate Registry. The business include those already reporting emissions to the state and those in the Fortune 500.

    The nonprofit registry is collecting emissions data from willing volunteers to provide a uniform way to calculate and verify greenhouse gas emissions. Its effort extends to 39 U.S. states, four Canadian provinces, two Mexican states and American Indian tribal areas.
