    In this episode of S&C’s Critical Insights, Sarah Payne and Cathy Clarkin discuss greenhouse gas emissions disclosures, an important component of the SEC’s highly anticipated climate-related rule proposals. Sarah and Cathy provide an overview of changes that would occur under the new rules, including the mandated disclosure of Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions, even if the emissions are not material to the company, required disclosures on a gas by gas basis, and perhaps most significantly, the requirement that accelerated filers and large accelerated filers have their Scope 1 and 2 emissions data covered by an attestation report.

    Episode 1: Implications of SEC’s Proposed Climate-Related Disclosure Rules

    In this episode of S&C’s Critical Insights, Jay Clayton and Cathy Clarkin provide an overview of the SEC’s highly anticipated climate-related rule proposals. The newly announced rules would require an expansion to both the breadth and the specificity of climate-related disclosures for both U.S. public companies and foreign private issuers. Jay additionally provides his assessment of the proposed rules, which are a significant departure from the SEC’s traditional materiality-based framework of disclosure and represent a move toward a more prescriptive climate-related disclosure regime.

    On March 21, the SEC released a comprehensive proposal to mandate climate-related disclosures in SEC reporting companies’ annual reports and registration statements.
