The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently launched a new web page focused on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues—covering the Commission’s new task force on climate and ESG issues and climate-related disclosure in public company filings.

Earlier this month, Acting SEC Chair Allison Herren Lee requested public comments on climate change disclosures, including feedback on how to: regulate, review and guide climate change disclosures; quantify and measure information regarding climate risks; and fit climate change disclosures into the SEC’s broader ESG framework. Comments are due to the Commission by June 13, 2021.
