California’s Climate Disclosure Laws Are Coming: What it Means for Your Company and How it Can Be a Competitive Advantage

Date: Wednesday, November 29, 2023 at 1 PM – 2 PM ET

Our Cherry Bekaert leaders will discuss the new California laws that force carbon emissions disclosures upon national and international firms. Although reporting isn’t set to begin until 2025, companies should begin planning for this now.

Join us as we discuss the details of the reporting requirements, key challenges, and what is yet to be defined. We’ll also compare these requirements to other public and private regulatory bodies, identifying efficiencies and opportunities for your organization.

During this webinar you will:

  • Understand what California’s SB 253 and 261 laws mean for your company
  • Understand the public and private carbon emissions reporting landscape
  • Learn how to build a plan for your carbon journey
