To be direct, yes, it’s coming. The proposed SEC Climate Rule requires public companies to disclose their carbon emissions in a standardized way. For large companies, this means new disclosures of scope 1 and 2 emissions for periods as early as 2024 (filed in 2025), with scope 3 emissions a year later. Smaller companies will phase-in shortly after. The exact timing will be announced in the final version of the rule.
