What You Should Know: Proposed SEC Disclosure Rules
The SEC is moving closer to mandated Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) disclosures for the first time. On March 21, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a proposed ESG disclosures rule that would require public companies to disclose their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and other climate change risks.
To date, the SEC has not established any requirements around ESG disclosures but did publish environmental financial risk guidance in 2010. Since then, investors have become increasingly concerned about climate-change related risks and the SEC is responding. Learn more with our Proposed SEC Disclosure Rule Fact Sheet.
