Submission for OMB Review; Public Disclosure of Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Reduction Goals-Representations, 83821-83822 [2016-28009]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 225 / Tuesday, November 22, 2016 / Notices requirements for all service providers no matter the risk for consumer harm. As a result, some small service providers have reported that entities have imposed the same due diligence requirements on them as for the largest service providers. The amendment clarifies that the risk management program may be tailored very appropriately to the size, market, and level of risk for consumer harm presented by the service provider. This change is consistent with the guidance of the Federal prudential regulators and aligns the bulletin with the Bureau’s approach that a risk management program should take into account the risk of consumer harm presented by the service being provided and supervised entities may tailor their due diligence based on the risk of consumer harm. Appropriate risk management programs would further the goal of ensuring that entities comply with Federal consumer financial laws and avoid consumer harm, including when using service providers. 6. Conclusion The Bureau expects that regular publication of Supervisory Highlights will continue to aid CFPB-supervised entities in their efforts to comply with Federal consumer financial law. The report shares information regarding general supervisory and examination findings (without identifying specific institutions, except in the case of public enforcement actions), communicates operational changes to the program, and provides a convenient and easily accessible resource for information on the CFPB’s guidance documents. Dated: October 31, 2016. Richard Cordray, Director, Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose Public disclosure of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and reduction goals or targets has become standard practice in many industries, and companies are increasingly asking their own suppliers about their GHG management practices. Performing a GHG inventory provides insight into operations, spurs innovation, and helps identify opportunities for efficiency and savings that can result in both environmental and financial benefits. By asking suppliers whether or not they publicly report emissions and reduction targets, the Federal Government will have accurate, up-to-date information on its suppliers. An annual representation will promote transparency and demonstrate the Federal Government’s commitment to reducing supply chain emissions. Furthermore, by promoting GHG management and emissions reductions in its supply chain, the Federal Government will encourage supplier innovation, greater efficiency, and cost savings, benefitting both the Government and suppliers and adding value to the procurement process. This representation would be mandatory only for vendors who received $7.5 million or more in Federal contract awards in the preceding Federal fiscal year. The representation would be voluntary for all other vendors. Additionally, as long as the vendor’s emissions are reported publicly—either by the entity itself or rolled up into the public emissions report of a parent company—the emissions would be considered publicly reported.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    Public disclosure of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and reduction 
goals or targets has become standard practice in many industries, and 
companies are increasingly asking their own suppliers about their GHG 
management practices. Performing a GHG inventory provides insight into 
operations, spurs innovation, and helps identify opportunities for 
efficiency and savings that can result in both environmental and 
financial benefits. By asking suppliers whether or not they publicly 
report emissions and reduction targets, the Federal Government will 
have accurate, up-to-date information on its suppliers. An annual 
representation will promote transparency and demonstrate the Federal 
Government's commitment to reducing supply chain emissions. 
Furthermore, by promoting GHG management and emissions reductions in 
its supply chain, the Federal Government will encourage supplier 
innovation, greater efficiency, and cost savings, benefitting both the 
Government and suppliers and adding value to the procurement process.
    This representation would be mandatory only for vendors who 
received $7.5 million or more in Federal contract awards in the 
preceding Federal fiscal year. The representation would be voluntary 
for all other vendors. Additionally, as long as the vendor's emissions 
are reported publicly--either by the entity itself or rolled up into 
the public emissions report of a parent company--the emissions would be 
considered publicly reported.

performance of functions of the FAR, and whether it will have practical 
utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection 
of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and 
methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
