On March 21, the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued proposed amendments to its rules that require public companies to provide certain climate-related information in their registration statements and annual reports. Assuming the rule is finalized by Dec. 2022, and there are no court delays, the SEC anticipates the new rule, which will be phased in, will begin to apply to the largest registrants in fiscal year 2023.
Among other stipulations, the proposed rule requires registrants to disclose information about their direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and indirect GHG emissions from purchased electricity and other forms of energy.
How do we help?
Alliant Energy’s Clean Energy Vision identifies specific goals over the next 30 years to achieve clean energy initiatives. By 2030, we will reduce our fossil fuel generation carbon dioxide emissions by 50% from 2005 levels. We will also reduce our electric utility water supply by 75% from 2005 levels, electrify 100% of our company-owned light-duty fleet vehicles and partner to plant more than 1 million trees. We plan to eliminate all coal from our generation fleet by 2040 and to achieve net-zero CO2 emissions from the electricity we generate by 2050.
This vision allows current and future customers to provide positive climate-related information on their registration statements and annual reports. Alliant Energy will continue to work toward clean energy generation and help our customers meet their environmental, sustainability and governance (ESG) goals and SEC requirements.
