US SEC proposes major changes to climate risk disclosures

Get in touch

In March 2022, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed rule changes that will require the disclosure of climate-related risks and opportunities. These amendments will apply to public companies in the USA and any foreign issuers listed in the USA.

Notably, the proposal includes a requirement for mandatory climate disclosures, drawing on the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol, and including Scopes 1, 2, and, for all but the smallest companies, material Scope 3 emissions. This will mean that GHG emissions will need to be reported and independently verified by a third-party specialist, such as LRQA.
