Tech giant Apple has come out in support of mandatory climate disclosures for companies, issuing a call on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to require consistent, audited emissions reporting.
Apple Global Head of Environmental and Energy Policy Arvin Ganesan issued a statement today, highlighting the centrality of transparency by companies in the fights against climate change:
“Disclosure is an important tool in the fight against climate change. Measuring and mapping carbon emissions enables companies to understand their footprint, develop strategies to reduce emissions and, ultimately, achieve decarbonization. And when keyed to thoughtful metrics, disclosure can serve to create a baseline of comparable, consistent and reliable information, help establish best practices, and promote competition – all critical steps to combatting climate change.”Apple Calls for Mandatory Climate Reporting – ESG Today
