Coalition Submits Comments on Greenhouse Gas and Climate Risk Rule

On February 13, The Coalition submitted comments on the Federal Government’s proposed rule regarding greenhouse gas disclosure and climate risk, which would add new climate-related reporting requirements for contractors with over 7.5 million dollars in annual Federal sales. We expressed support for the rule’s Scope 1 and 2 emissions disclosure requirements, but recommended that the Government take a different approach to Scope 3 emissions reporting and science-based emissions targets. We also recommended that the Government reduce the rule’s effect on small businesses and that it expand the number of locations companies may publish their climate disclosures.

The Coalition has submitted comments in response to GSA’s Federal Register notice requesting public input on an extension of the Transactional Data Reporting (TDR) pilot. Informed by the results we received from our survey on TDR last month, we express support for the continuation of the TDR pilot as an option for all Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contractors. The Coalition supports the introduction of TDR as an option for its ability to improve supply chain resilience, provide price transparency, and promote policy objectives, like sustainable acquisition. In addition, the Coalition expresses support for the development of further training and policy surrounding the program.
