SEC Climate Change Disclosure Requirements

October 20, 2010

On Wednesday, October 20, 2010, Beveridge & Diamond's Lily Chinn and Wilson Sonsoni Goodrich & Rosati’s Charlotte Kim, members of NAPABA's Sustainability and Climate Change Committee (SCCC), co-moderated a webinar on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) Climate Change disclosure requirements. 

The webinar addressed (1) the scope and impact of SEC's reporting requirements related to climate change based on its February 2010 interpretive release, (2) trends in SEC reporting and how industries such as electric power utilities have complied, and (3) how SEC's requirements compare to international standards.  The webinar also provided strategies and best practices for publicly-held companies to meet SEC's disclosure requirements.
