SEC focuses on disclosing climate change related issues

Lawyers are reporting that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is increasing the expectations that publicly-traded companies should outline climate change related issues. As a sample description of this trend, see this Advisory to from Sullivan and Worcester.

Failure to notify shareholders of the impact of operations on climate change may leave management exposed to extensive securities litigation with little ability to offer a strong defense. Directors & Officers ( D & O) Liability Insurers are still studying these SEC developments but it would not be surprising to see more emphasis on these issues at upcoming renewals.
