SEC climate-related disclosure proposal: Implications for SEC registrants and foreign portfolio investors

April 6, 2022

In this episode, Diana Billik, head of our Paris Capital Markets practice, and New York-based Capital Markets partner Justin Cooke give a concise overview of the proposed climate disclosures put forward by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that SEC registrants (both domestic and foreign) would be subject to.

They discuss: corporate governance and risk management in relations to a climate focused framework; climate related impacts to financial statements; greenhouse gas emission under the proposal (Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 disclosure mandates), including companies’ own emissions and their supply-chain emissions; and how the proposal could apply to current net-zero carbon emission goals.
