In episode eight of Bringing Clarity to Climate Accounting, host Adrian Smith once again welcomes Ecometrica co-founder and EcoOnline's Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Richard Tipper.
The US climate regulatory landscape has been dynamic and fast-paced in the past month, with significant developments in various states and at the federal level. From potential delays to key California climate legislation due to budget cuts, to New York's consideration of the Climate Corporate Accountability Act mirroring California's efforts, and the impending adoption of greenhouse gas emissions disclosure requirements by the US SEC.
Earlier this month, the Canadian Sustainability Standards Board (CSSB) announced that they would be launching a public consultation to accelerate the adoption of the Canadian Sustainability Disclosure Standards (CSDS) that will be modelled after IFRS S1 and S2 with Canadian-specific modifications proposed.
CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project) is a sustainability reporting framework that allows companies to disclose environmental information with the same rigour as financial information. The 2023 CDP scores have just been released and we want to say congratulations to all our customers and analysts who put in so much work putting together their disclosures.
In this blog post we break down the way that the IFRS Foundation has incorporated the TCFD framework into their IFRS S1 and S2 Standards and what that means for your organisation.
California passed two climate bills in October 2023 mandating GHG emissions reporting and climate-related financial risk legislation for large companies doing business in the state.
To make it easier to report GHG emissions across the three scopes, the GHG Protocol created a web-based tool called “Scope 3 Evaluator”, that allowed companies to estimate scope 3 (value chain) emissions and identify focus areas for a relevant and accurate scope 3 inventory. However, as of August 31, 2023, the GHG Protocol discontinued the tool, which had been functioning on decade-old technology.

Ecometrica announces the launch of its free Sustainability Compliance Navigator tool. The tool aims to help organisations in taking the complexity out of compliance, guiding respondents through a questionnaire that allows them to determine their eligibility for various sustainability regulations and frameworks across the UK, EU, US and Canada. Frameworks covered in the tool include the TCFD, EU CSRD and upcoming US SEC as well as voluntary frameworks such as the CDP and SBTi.
The Taskforce for Nature-related Financial Disclosure (TNFD) has launched their new framework. In this blog we go over what it took for such a robust framework to be developed, how they are based on the TCFD's existing four pillars and the ever-growing importance that nature has in disclosures.
