Briefing on the SEC Climate Disclosure Rule, with Keynote by SEC Chair Gary Gensler

Tue, 12 Apr 2022 18:00:00 GMT

Ceres will host a briefing with Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Gary Gensler about the SEC’s proposed climate disclosure rule.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) just released a proposed rule requiring climate disclosure from all U.S. public companies, called the Enhancement and Standardization of Climate-Related Disclosures for Investors. Public comments will be accepted until at minimum, May 20.

The mission of the SEC is to protect investors; maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets; and facilitate capital formation. With this proposed rule, the SEC is responding to the need by investors for clear, consistent and comparable reporting from companies to produce useful investment insights and ensure financial markets can properly price and act on the physical and transitional risks and opportunities of climate change.

Participants will:
  • Hear keynote remarks from SEC Chair Gary Gensler
  • Gain insight from Ceres’ high-level summary of the rule
  • Listen to reactions of the rule from a panel of distinguished investors
