They want to block California’s two landmark corporate climate disclosure laws

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the American Farm Bureau Federation led a coalition of businesses in filing a lawsuit to block one of California's most important climate legislation!
This lawsuit aims at blocking California’s two landmark corporate climate disclosure laws, which will require businesses to disclose their carbon footprint and climate-related financial risks and their Scope 3 emissions generated throughout their value chains.
“Why is the Chamber of Commerce working so aggressively to block basic transparency for the public? We know the answer,” State Senator Scott Wiener said. "[...] The Chamber is taking this extremist legal action because many large corporations — particularly fossil fuel corporations and large banks — are absolutely terrified that if they have to tell the public how dramatically they’re fueling climate change, they’ll no longer be able to mislead the public and investors.”

When will businesses stop acting against climate actions? European businesses will do it, why can't US businesses?

        A very bad precedent that should not have time in the courts

          This is a bad call that is going to hinder responsibility and accountability in making this regulations and policies work.

                  Regardless of the lawsuit's outcome, a dialogue between businesses, policymakers, and stakeholders is crucial.

                    Addressing climate change and fostering sustainability requires a combination of policy measures, corporate actions, and individual efforts. Its very unfortune such an institution can IGNORE this truth.

                            What a bad move. Transparency is so important for accountability and comparability.
