Toolkit For Developing Responses to The SEC Comment Period On Climate & ESG Disclosure

On March 15, 2021, the SEC issued a request for public input on the Commission’s rules and guidance regarding climate change and ESG disclosures. This request signals an inflection point and an important opportunity. We encourage those in the Predistribution Initiative (PDI) community to respond to the SEC’s inquiry with your feedback on why mandatory disclosure is important, what should be disclosed, and how disclosure should be developed and structured. It is particularly important for investors, including asset owners, allocators, and asset managers, to respond given the SEC’s mission of, “protecting investors, maintaining fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitating capital formation.”

Thank you to PDI Advisor, Kim Leslie Schaefer, for developing a toolkit that can be used by organizations and individuals interested in participating in this comment period.
