SEC Climate-Related Disclosures Rule

The SEC climate related disclosure rule will require public companies to disclose climate-related information in their annual 10-K filings.

We are committed to helping you navigate climate-related reporting requirements. There are three key pieces of climate-related information that the registrants will have to provide in their registration statement and annual reports, including:

  • Climate-related risks 
  • Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
  • Attestation reports over Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions (for large and accelerated filers)

Climate-Related Risks (For non-attest clients)

Our team can help you identify and asses climate-related risks by analyzing potential impacts on your operations, financials, and overall business, providing you actionable insights to mitigate these risks.

GHG Reporting (For non-attest clients)

We collect and analyze data related to your emissions, including Scope 1 (direct from owned or controlled sources) and Scope 2 (indirect emissions from purchased energy). Our goal is to help you quantify and disclose your carbon footprint accurately.

Attestation Reports for Scope 1 and Scope 2 Emissions

For large and accelerated filers, we provide specialized attestation reports that specifically address Scope 1 and Scope 2 and are here to support you when you expand our reporting to include Scope 3 emissions (indirect emissions from value chain activities). 

ESG Assurance Services

Assessment of Client’s SEC Filing Readiness Including Design, Implementation, and Monitoring of a Transition Plan

  • Gap analysis using the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) Framework and SASB Standards as a benchmark. While the TCFD (and the SEC consequently) focuses on financial materiality, there are many opportunities on the sustainability side to impact the bottom line.
  • For non-attest clients, we help establish and implement strategic roadmaps to help clients achieve goals including creating metrics, limits, and reporting frameworks (e.g., SASB, TCFD) for both investors and regulators.
  • Training on TCFD, at any level.

Independent Verification and Assurance (for attest clients)

  • TCFD Reports, including any industry-specific supplements.
  • Specific climate-related financial statement metrics and related financial statement disclosures included in 10-K and registration SEC filings.
  • SASB and sustainability reports.
  • GHG emissions report (Scope 1 and 2).
