We continue our series on the SEC's climate disclosure proposal by looking at key similarities and differences compared to two global climate proposals.
In addition to the SEC’s climate disclosure proposal, there are two other global proposals that could impact US companies. This week, Heather Horn was joined by Andreas Ohl and Valerie Wieman, partners in PwC’s National Office, to review and discuss important considerations on the global proposals.
In this episode, you will hear:
  • 1:51 - An overview of the ISSB and CSRD proposals and why you should pay attention to them
  • 12:39 - Recap on the SEC’s climate proposal in the context of global proposals
  • 14:35 - A discussion of equivalency amongst the proposals
  • 19:27 - How materiality and climate related risk disclosure requirements vary among the proposals
  • 24:57 - Similarities among the governance disclosure requirements
  • 27:35 - A comparison of attest, footnote, and GHG emission disclosure requirements
  • 35:47 - A deeper dive into the scope of GHG disclosure requirements
