Changes are coming to the sustainability rules in government contracting. On November 10, 2022, the President proposed a set of rules which would require major Federal contractors to publicly disclose their greenhouse gas emissions, and climate related financial risks.  In response, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is creating a federal contractor climate scorecard requirement, assessing climate-related risks in government contracts, and gauging contractor sustainability efforts. It will consider how contractors promote sustainability practices, and what plans they have that reduce their company’s carbon footprint.  Additionally, a sustainability working group has been added to the federal CIO council – creating a roadmap to sustainable information technology in the government and among contractors.  Together these changes point to a tougher and more expensive sustainability landscape for federal contractors. Join Larry Allen and Troy Cribb as they answer the following questions:

  1. What is the climate scorecard, where did it come from, and why is it important?
  2. Who is going to pay for recent climate change regulations?
  3. What should contractors do, and why should they do it?
  4. Where can I find more information on climate efforts in Government Contracting?
  5. How can my contractor put together a climate scorecard plan?
