When the SEC approved its climate disclosure rules, it fired a starting pistol for companies to prepare for a complex set of new requirements, even if some of the most onerous have been dropped. Effective compliance that meets both SEC and investor expectations will entail not only reporting the right information but also implementing the right governance policies and processes, from the board on down.  

In this webinar, a panel of experts will discuss how companies and their boards can prepare beyond simply the headline compliance requirements – and how to take into account the agency’s decision to pause implementation of the rules pending litigation seeking to overturn them. Specific topics to be covered during the discussion include:

  • What should corporate secretaries and other governance professionals be telling their boards about the rules, related oversight and potential risks?
  • Which governance policies and processes will companies and boards need in the short and longer term?
  • What other steps should in-house legal and other governance professionals be taking now to prepare for the rules?
  • How will compliance efforts vary depending on a company’s cap size?
  • What are the potential impacts of the rules on investor voting during this year’s proxy season and on shareholder proposals for proxy season 2025?
  • Should companies be taking into account litigation seeking to overturn the rules?
