On March 21, the SEC proposed new rules to enhance public company disclosures related to the risks and impact of climate change, with extraterritorial effects applicable to certain Japanese issuers that have US nexus. Although the SEC still needs to consider public input on the proposal and adopt a final rule before any new disclosures would be required, business leaders should pay attention now. Given the scope of the proposal, efforts to understand and start to operationalize the requirements are imperative.

This webinar will provide participants with:

·       An overview of the SEC Climate Disclosure Proposal

·       Practical actions to consider

·       Q&A
