California Climate-Related Disclosures Webinar

California Climate-Related Disclosures Webinar

  • Tuesday, November 28, 2023 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM 

California recently passed the nation’s first climate disclosure laws, with far-reaching effects for companies operating in the state. In a series of three bills (SB253SB 261, and AB1305), the State ushered in mandatory climate disclosures for public and private companies, ranging from Scope 1 to 3 greenhouse gas emissions, climate-related financial risk, and carbon neutral, net zero and related reduction claims, including those made by relying on carbon offsets.

Please join Jayni Hein, co-chair of Covington's Carbon Management and Climate Mitigation group, and Kevin Poloncarz, co-chair of the firm's ESG and Environmental practices and Energy Industry group, for a conversation on the business implications of the landmark California climate-related disclosures laws and preparing for compliance with a global perspective. 

Our expert panel will discuss:

  • Understanding these new laws and assessing the impact on your business;
  • Increased scrutiny of climate-related claims, emission reduction plans, and use of carbon offsets; and
  • Developing a comprehensive compliance strategy including disclosure requirements across multiple jurisdictions.
