On March 6, 2024, the United States’ Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) voted to adopt climate disclosure rules for more standardized ESG reporting. The rules require public companies in the United States to disclose climate-related risks, board oversight and management of those risks, climate-related goals that could have a material impact on the business, and, in some cases, scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions.
