Breaking down the SEC's climate disclosure proposal

Chris McClure, Mark Shannon, Wes Kelly, Adam Pajakowski, and Marc Rossell

The Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC’s) proposed climate risk rules would require registrants to disclose significant new information about how organizations are measuring and addressing climate risk. These disclosures would appear in registration statements and annual reports as soon as 2023. The proposed rules have implications across an organization, and boards, management, internal audit, and independent auditors all will play key roles.

In this panel discussion, hear from specialists who break down the SEC’s proposed rules, highlight noteworthy comments, and identify important next steps you can take in preparation for the final rules.

Our presenters:

  • Explain the key elements of the proposed rules
  • Discuss any highlights from the comment period
  • Outline next steps for boards, management, and internal audit
