Climate Risk Reporting – Are You Ready For It?

Climate Risk Reporting – Are You Ready For It?

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in March 2022 proposed rules to enhance and standardize climate-related disclosures of publicly traded companies along with recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). This would include reporting companies’ greenhouse gas emissions - Scope 1, 2, and 3 - assessing risks potentially having a material impact on the business, operations, and financials.

Having invited public comments to its proposal by June 17th, the SEC received approximately 700 non-form letter comments and previously met with about 60 organizations. The SEC aims to publish its final rule set by EOY 2022 after it digests the letters received as well as its meetings with organizations from Apple to Walmart including five with SASB. One of the more condensed responses we came across (posted anonymously) was “I believe Al Gore; he said global warming is real and we will have no ice left anywhere.” although the vast majority contained more detailed comments and data both for and against. Clearly, Washington’s lobby machinery will be in high gear while the SEC works to finalize its requirements for climate change disclosure. 

The European Commission adopted its Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) in April with a first full set of disclosed standards expected to be formalized by October, expecting EU member states to adopt CSDR into national law by end of the year. Meanwhile, the United Kingdom with its Sustainability Disclosure Requirements (SDRs) seems to seek a middle ground between both TCFD and CSRD.

Effectively as of the start of 2023, Accelerated Filers in the US and Large Undertakings in the EU must track their climate risks, including Scope 1 and 2, in compliance with the above directives.
