Reporting Corporate Climate Risks and Opportunities
Through climate risk and opportunity reporting, organizations can report to the public how they are identifying, assessing, and managing climate-related risks (physical and transition) and opportunities. This type of reporting allows organizations to report:
- Their governance structure for climate-related risks and opportunities.
- Actual and potential impacts of climate-related risks and opportunities on their strategy, businesses, and financial planning.
- Their methods to identify, assess, and manage climate-related risks.
- The metrics and targets they use to assess and manage relevant climate-related risks and opportunities.

EPA's guidance is aligned with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol. EPA has developed resources to help organizations conduct, assess, and reduce their Scope 1, 2, and 3 GHG emissions – a key step to inform transition risk and opportunity assessments.
