A new rule proposed by the Biden Administration would require large federal contractors to publicly disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and other climate change risks, as well as set science-based emissions reduction targets. At $630 billion in annual spending the U.S. Government is the largest purchaser of goods and services in the world! Climate advisors Sarah O’Brien, CEO, Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council; Steven Rothstein, Managing Director, Ceres Accelerator for Sustainable Capital Markets and John Kostyack, Ceres Consultant are joining me for this discussion. We will highlight details of this proposed rule and share with our listeners how they can submit public comments on the proposal through the Jan. 13th deadline.
