SEC Includes Disclosure of Climate Change Risks
Wednesday, 19 May 2010
In January 2010, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) voted to provide public companies with interpretive guidance on existing SEC disclosure requirements as they relate to climate change. Risks associated with climate change may trigger disclosure requirements for:
- Impact of legislation and regulation
- Impact of international accords
- Indirect consequences of regulation or business trends
- Physical impacts of climate change
In order for companies to fulfill their reportinging requirements they must be able to identify their carbon impact and how a changing climate may impact their business. Carbonfund.org provides many carbon management services for businesses to help the quantify their carbon footprint and actively manage their impact.
