May 4, 2022

In this episode of S&C’s Critical Insights, Michelle Chen and June Hu discuss the SEC’s new climate disclosure proposal and its implications for financial institutions.
On March 21, the SEC released a comprehensive proposal to mandate climate-related disclosures in SEC reporting companies’ annual reports and registration statements. Michelle and June discuss aspects of the proposed rules that will likely have particular implications for financial institutions, especially in light of the increasing focus from financial regulators on climate-related financial risks, as well as financial institutions’ other obligations that may affect their overall climate strategy.
