Comparison: State vs. Federal
  • Rules. Before 2009, little action was taken at the federal level, beyond voluntary initiatives, to implement greenhouse gas (GHG) management strategies ensuring that GHG emissions are accounted for and controlled. However, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has changed its stance and is initiating actions to monitor and control GHG emissions.
  • South Dakota has not implemented any regulatory programs for GHG management, other than establishing participating in regional programs.

  • Administration and enforcement. South Dakota’s Office of the Governor represents the state's interests in regional climate change initiatives.
  • State Requirements


    Mandatory Reporting

    40 CFR 98

    At this time, South Dakota has no mandatory GHG reporting requirements beyond the federal mandatory GHG reporting rule. See the national section GHG MANAGEMENT for more information on mandatory GHG reporting.


    South Dakota is currently involved in the following regional programs to address GHG emissions:

    • Energy Security and Climate Stewardship Platform
    • Midwestern Greenhouse Gas Reduction Accord, as an observer
