Wyoming companies to report pollution levels

Laramie, WY – Several Wyoming companies have volunteered to report their greenhouse gas emissions.

Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality director John Corra says the DEQ invited 30 companies to join the Climate Registry, an international organization whose members report their levels of pollution. He says the companies that joined knew that at some point, they're going to have to report emissions. In the meantime, Corra says, reporting will be good PR.

Corra says some of the information will be public, but it's not yet clear how specific it will be. The volunteers range from Shell Oil Company and Pacificorp to the Grand Targhee Resort.
