What climate-risk disclosures mean for federal contractors

Leaders at the US Council on Environmental Quality, the Carbon Disclosure Project and EY talk about proposed climate disclosures and the science-based target directive and implications for major federal contractors.

At the 27th Conference of the Parties to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27), President Biden highlighted actions to address greenhouse gas emissions and protect the federal government’s supply chains from climate-related financial risks.  The proposed Federal Supplier Climate Risks and Resilience Rule would require major federal contractors to publicly disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and climate-related financial risks and set science-based emissions reductions targets.

Panelists from the US White House Council for Environmental Quality and the Carbon Disclosure Project will join EY leaders to provide an overview of the proposed rule requiring major federal contractors to publicly disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and climate-related financial risks and set science-based emissions reduction targets.

Topics discussed include:

  • Components of the new rule
  • Setting science-based targets
  • Operationalizing reporting for climate disclosures

Moderator:
