SEC’s Director Renee Jones on Climate-Related Disclosures for Investors
American Sustainable Business Network presents a webinar featuring Renee Jones, Director of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Corporation Finance. Director Jones addresses the SEC’s proposed rule that would enhance and standardize registrants’ climate-related disclosures for investors.
The enhancement and standardization of climate-related disclosures is overdue and urgently needed to help investors and American businesses compete effectively in an economy that needs to move faster than it is today towards decarbonization. Under today’s governance, businesses and investors working to decrease or eliminate their impact on the climate crisis do not have a level playing field when it comes to reporting and assessing climate-related topics and validating suitable investment choices. Investors and business owners, and consequently their impact on the climate crisis, will benefit from greater transparency and accountability proposed by the SEC.
