Greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting is experiencing unprecedented expansion. With increasing regulatory pressure — for example, the United States Securities Exchange Commission’s (SEC) proposed climate risk disclosure rule and the European Union’s (EU) Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive — there is increased urgency for more reliable and shareable corporate emissions data.
At Climate Week in New York City, the Carbon Call will bring together corporations, regulators, standard setters, and philanthropies to present actionable solutions that help companies overcome constraints when gathering, interpreting, and sharing GHG data. This includes developing:
These solutions will aid companies better discover, understand, and share GHG emissions data and deliver on regulatory drivers such as reporting mandates, as well as voluntary disclosures and tracking climate targets.
Launched in 2022, the Carbon Call has brought together leaders from 80 companies, philanthropies, and organizations to work together to better discover, understand, and share GHG emissions data. The Carbon Call is mobilizing collective action, investment, and resources to strengthen GHG accounting, making it more reliable and interoperable for the planet.
At COP27 in Egypt last November, the Carbon Call released the Roadmap to more Interoperable Greenhouse Gas Emissions Accounting, outlining findings and opportunities to drive more interoperable GHG accounting and reporting. The roadmap results from five months of collective problem-solving and is backed by case studies from the Carbon Call’s member organizations.
