About this talk

The State of California recently enacted legislation that is expected to significantly impact corporate climate reporting and accountability policies and programs for organizations that conduct business in the state. As the first laws of their kind in the U.S., the Climate Corporate Data Accountability Act (CCDAA) and the Climate Related Financial Risk Act (CRFRA) require companies to be transparent about greenhouse gas emissions and the financial risks associated with climate change. These groundbreaking laws pose new challenges for businesses operating in California, considering steep fines of up to $500,000 per violation. The responsibility for ensuring compliance with these laws rests squarely on the shoulders of the risk, compliance, and sustainability leaders within your organization. For many organizations, this is uncharted territory that will challenge existing compliance and sustainability programs to understand what is required and adapt accordingly. Yet, in this challenge lies an opportunity for you to lead the way in corporate accountability and sustainability. We invite you to join Verdantix and Archer for this webinar, “California’s Climate Change Legislation: What Your Business Needs to Know” to: • Gain an understanding of the key provisions of California's new regulations and how they impact your organization's compliance and sustainability reporting. • Discover the broader implications of these groundbreaking California laws on corporate climate reporting, accountability, and sustainability programs. • Learn about technology that can help you manage and advance your ESG program.
