MAISY Scope 3 Financial Emissions Accounting



The state of California passed two bills in October 2023 that require Scope 3 emissions disclosures for financial firms doing business in that state. CA emissions reporting requirements are even more extensive than SEC proposals suggested in 2022. These emissions can easily account for more than 95 percent of total emissions for financial and other firms. This huge new reporting requirement opens the door to independent auditing and challenging of the reported results, so affected firms need to take this new rule seriously and to conscientiously conduct required analysis and reporting to avoid challenges to corporate CSR commitments.

Financial institutions outside California should also take notice as trends in California often lead to similar requirements in other states.
