Climate & Sustainability-Related Disclosure Reporting

SEC Compliant Disclosure Reporting

The US Security Exchange Commission (SEC) requires registrants to disclose climate-related financial information and Scope 1 and 2 emissions.

Additionally, new and emerging regulations to disclose climate-related financial information and Scope 1, 2 and/or Scope 3 emissions may begin to impact foreign-registered organizations operating in other markets, such as the European Common Market.

Mandated or not, climate-related risk disclosure can help maintain a social licence, open sales opportunities, and enable access to capital – while also preempting regulations that may impact your organization in the future.

Find out how your organization can quickly adopt approved standards and fast-forward your disclosure experience.

CSA Climate-Related Disclosure

What are the reporting requirements?

The final SEC ruling requires registrants to disclose the following where material, and in a phased-in approach:

  • Climate-related risks;
  • Activities to mitigate or adapt to such risks;
  • Board of directors’ oversight and management’s role in managing climate-related risks;
  • Climate-related targets; and
  • Disclosure of Scope 1 and/or Scope 2 emissions.

Under the proposed CSA requirements, companies would be required to disclose the material risks to their business and their consolidated financial statements, including physical risks (such as extreme weather events) and transition risks (such as changes in regulations and market trends), in line with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) recommendations.

In short, climate-related disclosure requirements vary as materiality topics, emission scopes, and reference frameworks are specific to each industry sector and business use case. Assessment can entail various activities, such as emissions quantification, climate-related risk management, and much more.
