Please join us on April 26th at noon for a deeper dive into the SEC’s proposal for enhancing and standardizing climate-related disclosures in a conversation with Renee Jones, Director of the Division of Corporation Finance at the SEC.
In a recent article, I noted that these rules have been a long time coming. The sustainable investment community should now lead the way in providing comments to support and refine them, helping to ensure that they are implemented effectively and as soon as possible.
Implementing climate disclosures is challenging work, but the 500 page length of the full proposal equally reflects the deep research, extensive stakeholder input and careful analysis by the SEC staff in generating the proposal.
With this webinar, we want to help investment professionals navigate that material. Investment professionals working in this space are ideally positioned to articulate the benefits of standardized climate disclosure and to suggest improvements to reduce the cost and time of doing so.
I will be joined by Steven Rothstein, Managing Director of the Ceres Accelerator for Sustainable Capital Markets, in facilitating the conversation and Q&A with Dr. Jones. Steven and Ceres have been leaders in engaging regulators, corporations and investors in this work. Steven and I worked together to create a 2020 session for investment professionals on climate as a systemic risk and the role of regulators in addressing that risk.
This session will not be recorded, so please join us live on April 26th by registering here at the CFA Boston web site.
