Today, we release the fourth podcast in our series analyzing the impact of 10 years of SEC’s conflict minerals rule and what we might be able to take away from that experience looking towards a final SEC climate disclosure rule. In this installment, Dr. Chris Bayer, Ph.D, talks with me about how the SEC conflict minerals rule influenced/impacted global markets and international public policy. We cover:
- Did conflict minerals data influence governmental policy development and actions on the ground?
- How did markets respond?
- Did conflict minerals data influence competition between companies?
- Should we expect similar outcomes in response to emissions data disclosures?
