PRTR Disclosure

Pollutant release and transfer register (PRTR) systems are environmental databases or inventories of potentially hazardous chemical substances and/or other pollutants released into the air, water and soil and transferred off-site for treatment and disposal.
PRTR data disclosure enables enterprises to identify and track resource use as well as pollutant emission and transfer, and improve environmental performance accordingly. An increase in information transparency also helps to build trust with stakeholders.
The disclosure of PRTR data also enables the government, purchasers, financial institutions and investors, and the public to gain a comprehensive understanding of enterprises’ environmental performance and to promote multi-stakeholder participation in ecological and environmental protection.

Carbon Disclosure

Carbon data disclosure refers to the public reporting of an enterprise‘s annual greenhouse gas emissions, climate targets and progress, carbon intensity, energy consumption, carbon assets and other data. Carbon data is the key to achieve carbon peaking and carbon neutrality. Mainstream environmental information disclosure guidelines in China and internationally all put forward clear requirements for carbon data disclosure.
Enterprises can calculate and publicly disclose the above data via the Blue Map, identify hot emission hotspots, set science-based emission reduction targets, accelerate low-carbon transition, improve market competitiveness, and achieve sustainable development. The disclosure of carbon data also enables multi-stakeholder participation in the global climate governance and the “race to zero”.

Procedures:
  • Register a corporate user account on the Blue Map Database;

  • Once logged in, go to “My Green Choice”, click on “Data Submission and Tracking” - “Carbon Disclosure”;

  • Disclose the greenhouse gas emissions, climate targets and progress, carbon intensity, energy consumption, carbon assets, and provide supporting documents;

  • IPE will review the data and documents and help enterprises to publicly disclose carbon data.
