This discussion delves into the upcoming regulations proposed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These regulations will require publicly-traded organizations to provide detailed disclosure of their climate-related information, including risks that may significantly affect their business and financial condition, as well as greenhouse gas emissions. These changes aim to establish standardized metrics and enhance transparency regarding climate-related risks for investors and stakeholders. Of particular concern are the potential new requirements for supply chain disclosures given the complex, far-reaching, and largely uncontrollable nature of these emissions sources.
While some companies may prefer a “wait-and-see” approach towards the SEC’s guidance, adopting this stance could result in missed opportunities for early progress and the numerous value-creating benefits associated with gaining a comprehensive understanding of their climate-related risks and opportunities.
In this session, sustainability and disclosure experts from Persefoni and 3Degrees explore the crucial considerations that companies need to address in preparation for this new mandate with a particular focus on supply chain considerations. The webinar covers the following key topics:
- A comprehensive overview of the proposed SEC climate rule
- A broader examination of other emerging global regulations and standards, such as the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB)
- Scope 3 data collection and measurement challenges and approaches
- Practical steps and strategies for engaging with suppliers and implementing decarbonization initiatives in the supply chain
- Tools, strategies, and best practices to ensure data integrity and ready your organization for pending reporting regulation
