SEC Compliance

Get SEC disclosure-ready with confidence

The US Securities & Exchange Commission is requiring publicly listed companies to disclose carbon emissions, climate-related risk, and their plans for reducing emissions and mitigating risk. Watershed helps companies create and share climate disclosures with confidence.

Get SEC-ready with Watershed


Understand your emissions

The SEC requires that companies report carbon emissions alongside their financials—which means starting with granular, accurate emissions measurement.


Assess your climate risk

Once you understand your carbon footprint, you can assess climate-related risks within your business—another requirement of the SEC’s proposed regulation.


File disclosures

Watershed helps validate your data, prepare your filing, and ensure your disclosures are vetted and audit-ready. We'll also help you set targets and take concrete steps to reduce your emissions and mitigate climate risk.

Insights from our law firm network


The Securities and Exchange Commission—the main US regulator over public financial markets—adopted a new rule in March 2024 that requires publicly-listed companies to report climate data alongside their financial results. The rule calls for transparency on carbon emissions, climate risks, and how boards and executives are integrating climate into their wider strategy. Companies need to disclose their current performance, their plans to reduce those emissions and risks, and how they’re doing against those plans.

Meet our Policy Advisory Board

To help our customers stay ahead of rapidly changing climate policies and disclosure requirements, we created the Watershed Policy Advisory Board, which includes key architects of global climate policy. The board, chaired by Mark Carney, a Watershed advisor since 2021 and former governor of the Bank of England, features former government officials and industry leaders with deep climate expertise.
