For years, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) has dominated headlines and boardrooms as stakeholders’ demands evolve and regulators establish landscape-changing ESG disclosure mandates. Now that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has released its climate disclosure proposal, join Workiva’s Steve Soter and WilmerHale’s Alan Wilson and Lily Brown for “The SEC Climate Disclosure Mandate: What You Need to Know.”

Steve, Alan, and Lily will break down what the proposed mandate might mean as finance and sustainability teams begin implementing and maturing their own ESG programs to deliver both business and ESG value, driven by transparent, investment-grade reporting.

After this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Analyze the SEC’s recently issued climate disclosure proposal.
  • Discuss key requirements in the proposal, including proposed changes to regulations S-K and S-X.
  • Review the potential impact of the proposal to a company’s internal controls.
  • Recall the potential impact on sustainability and financial reporting teams to comply with the required timing of the proposed disclosures and attestations.
