Climate Disruption: Reputational and Regulatory Concerns for Boards

Lawyers at Risk: How the Changing Landscape of International Human Rights Law Will Impact your Practice Background Image

On March 15, the SEC opened a public comment period regarding potential climate change disclosure regulations. This was only the most recent in a flurry of activities emphasizing the Commission’s renewed focus on climate and ESG issues. The prospect of regulatory requirements for climate disclosures raises a number of important questions regarding governance, data management, and the availability of climate-relevant information that might be disclosed by both public and private companies.
