Contractors may soon have to make their greenhouse emissions data available through the Systems for Awards Management due to a new rule proposed earlier this month, according to FCW.
The new rule was proposed by the Defense Department, General Services Administration and NASA on May 15.
A recent White House blog post said that the information would help assess suppliers’ greenhouse gas management practices and help agencies develop strategies to talk with contractors to reduce supply chain emissions, FCW reported.
The proposed FAR rule “sends another clear market signal that there is strong interest for disclosure of greenhouse gas emissions and climate-related risk data government-wide,” FCW quoted the blog post as saying.
