Preparing for the SEC’s Climate Rule: An ESG Disclosure Checklist

The proposal, which is expected to be finalized in April 2023, also calls for large companies to obtain assurance from an independent third party that their emissions disclosures are accurate, and provide information on any Scope 3 emissions that are deemed material to their business.

How can organizations prepare for this new rule? By ensuring they have the right systems in place for tracking greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reporting that data to regulators.
