Keeping you in-the-know on environmental, social and governance developments

I’ve spent a few months digesting the SEC’s climate disclosure proposal – and I’ve even been working with Dave Lynn & John Jenkins to put pen to paper on some model disclosures. What I’ve learned from that exercise is that this is an even more urgent and heavier lift for companies than what I’d first expected. The SEC’s enforcement efforts have also intensified in a way that will increase investor demand for this information. So, even as the SEC continues to review the comment file (now totaling over 10,900 and 36 meetings with Staff), companies need to start moving forward.

We are eager to get the word out on this and share practical step-by-step guidance. As a follow-up to our April webcast about “first steps” in response to the SEC’s climate disclosure proposal – and as a precursor to our “1st Annual Practical ESG Conference” on October 11th, join us for a FREE video webcast about these landmark rules on July 13th at 2:00 pm Eastern. Our experienced panelists – from a variety of industries & backgrounds – will discuss next steps to take RIGHT NOW in anticipation of the breathtaking disclosure requirements.   

As a bonus, we’ll unveil our model disclosure and discuss the drafting challenges we faced — providing meaningful lessons to anyone looking ahead and preparing.

This “Pre-Conference Event” consists of two one-hour sessions. Our first session, beginning at 2:00 pm Eastern, will cover:

  • How to convey to your bosses & colleagues the major differences between this proposal and traditional SEC reporting, and existing ESG disclosures;
  • Tips for overcoming the new challenges that this disclosure will create;
  • Key steps for companies to take right now to prepare for compliance;
  • Former regulators’ perspectives; and
