Climate Risk Consulting
As the global regulatory landscape changes regarding environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors, there is an ever-increasing need for climate data collection and data verification experts with scientific and technical accounting knowledge. CFOs need a SWAT team of experts to rely on that are grounded in the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol and have the analytical, technical, and writing expertise to report aligned with the Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework.
Our climate risk consulting offerings include:
- Greenhouse gas blueprinting
- Scopes 1 & 2 emissions inventory
- Scope 3 value chain mapping and emission calculation
- Climate risk assessment and scenario analysis
- TCFD reporting disclosure
- CDP questionnaire
- SEC requirements mapping
- Climate reporting readiness
- Target setting
- GHG inventory management plans
Our approach to climate data and disclosures builds from a baseline emissions inventory to more complex CDP questionnaires and required disclosures in line with TCFD and the proposed SEC climate disclosure rule. We have extensive experience working with our clients to prepare CDP questionnaires, inventory greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, perform climate risk assessments, and draft content.
Whether your company hasn’t yet reported its first Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions data, or has completed CDP for years and needs some extra hands or expertise to improve scores or expand reporting to the TCFD framework, our team is well-suited to support all levels of reporting goals. Riveron integrates its proven Climate expertise and cross-functional advisory capabilities to build a repeatable process for reporting investor-grade climate data. Our greenhouse gas calculation tool features auditable templates and processes for calculating Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions.
Leveraging best practices across risk management, internal controls, and accounting advisory, we apply similar concepts to climate data and help companies prepare structured and audit-ready support for SEC climate disclosures, other ESG reporting obligations, and required third-party assurance. Finally, our ESG consulting team, including technical writing specialists and SEC experts, will translate these complex disclosures into a stakeholder-facing ESG narrative to be included in investor materials, 10k filings, and proxy statements.
Many companies will need to disclose emissions to another regulatory body well before the SEC climate rule goes into effect.

While public companies await the final SEC climate rule, climate-related disclosure requirements are already here for many US companies.
Regarding climate-risk reporting, the various ESG standards and frameworks, including CDP and TCFD, along with the new climate rule proposed by the SEC, can be a challenge to sort through.
A proactive path is essential for success as ESG reporting moves from voluntary to mandatory, impacting audit cycles, risk management, and more.
