Event Details

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has proposed a rule on the “Enhancement and Standardization of Climate-Related Disclosures for Investors” under the Securities Act of 1933. Among other provisions, it would require that registrants disclose their climate-related risks “reasonably likely to have material impacts” upon their respective businesses and disclose their respective greenhouse gas emissions, “which have become a commonly used metric to assess a registrant’s exposure to such risks.” This proposed rule is highly complex, controversial, and worthy of detailed scrutiny and debate.

Join AEI’s Benjamin Zycher, SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce, and a panel of experts, including two former SEC commissioners, for a conversation about this complex and controversial rule. Watch the livestream at 2 p.m. on December 7 here.
