FAQ

The Securities and Exchange Commission—the main US regulator over public financial markets—proposed a new rule in March that would require publicly-listed companies to report climate data alongside their financial results. The rule calls for full transparency on carbon emissions, climate risks, and how boards and executives are integrating climate into their wider strategy. Companies would need to disclose their current performance, their plans to reduce those emissions and risks, and how they’re doing against those plans.
