EESI – What Congress Needs to Know About Corporate Climate Risk, Resilience, and Disclosures
The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) invites you to a briefing on corporate climate risk, resilience, and disclosures. The climate crisis is increasingly impacting companies of all sizes by threatening valuable assets, operations, and supply chains. At the same time, many companies contribute to the climate crisis by emitting greenhouse gases, and efforts to curb those emissions could impact companies. In March 2022, the Securities and Exchange Commission proposed a rule that, if adopted, would require publicly-traded companies to disclose climate-related risks and report their greenhouse gas emissions.
Panelists will discuss the role of Congress in designing and overseeing policy for climate risk disclosures, and the benefits and impacts that the proposed rule would have on federal agencies, companies, and shareholders.
