This webinar will review two bills passed recently—the Climate Corporate Data Accountability Act (SB 253) and Climate-Related Financial Risk Act (SB 261)—requiring essentially every company doing business in California to make climate-related disclosures if the company’s revenues are over a certain threshold. Our presenters will address the requirements for qualifying companies, pending challenges to the laws, and steps companies should be taking now to be prepared for when the disclosure requirements go into effect. We will also discuss the Voluntary Market Disclosures Act (AB 1305), which requires companies doing business in California to publish the number and type of voluntary carbon offsets they buy and sell.
