March 22, 2022 /3BL Media/ - Workiva Inc. (NYSE:WK), the company powering transparent reporting for a better world, applauds the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) recommended climate disclosure mandates announced this week.
The SEC's proposed mandates would require a domestic or foreign registrant to include certain climate-related information in its registration statements and periodic reports, such as on Form 10-K. These include, climate-related risks and their actual or likely material impacts on the registrant’s business, strategy, and outlook; the registrant’s governance of climate-related risks and relevant risk management processes; the registrant’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which, for accelerated and large accelerated filers and with respect to certain emissions, would be subject to assurance; certain climate-related financial statement metrics and related disclosures in a note to its audited financial statements; and information about climate-related targets and goals, and transition plans.
“With our experience navigating SEC mandates and guiding customers to stay ahead of global regulations, Workiva has created a seamless process that allows organizations to file needed investor-grade environmental, social and governance (ESG) disclosures that are both board and audit-ready within the same platform they already trust for financial compliance reporting,” said Marty Vanderploeg, CEO of Workiva. “We are confident the SEC’s proposed mandates will facilitate greater transparency of corporate climate impacts.”
