Regulations are Shaking Up Emissions Reporting

California’s Climate Corporate Data Accountability Act imposes the obligation to track and report an organization’s climate impact across its entire global and domestic operations. That includes all Scope 3 emissions.

More on SB 253

The proposed SEC rule would require disclosure of indirect emissions whenever deemed material. Even without Scope 3 making the final cut, suppliers will be pressured to disclose their climate impact.

SEC Climate Disclosure Rule

The EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) mandates granular emissions disclosure and setting reduction targets across Scopes 1,2 and 3. Reporting will require third-party verification.

About the CSRD

Australia is tightening disclosure standards as the impacts of climate change mount. An estimated 23,000 companies will have to detail their Scope 3 emissions because of the proposed Climate-Related Financial Disclosure.

Only 41% of Companies Report Scope 3 Emissions, CDP says
