Mandate disclosures relating to climate change represent a new trend in the U.S. and around the world. Recent additions to the climate change regulatory landscape include a new mandate by the SEC and three new laws enacted in California. These climate change provisions portend similar regulations at state and federal levels, as well as around the world. In this episode, Dorsey attorneys Brian Bell and Kayla Race explain the requirements and applicability of the SEC rules and California statutes with Dorsey attorney and podcast host Kent Schmidt. Learn what steps to take to ensure compliance, including the accuracy and completeness of the mandatory disclosures. The discussion also covers how a failure to comply with these climate-related obligations may lead to not only regulatory actions and penalties, but also litigation by shareholders, consumers, and other stakeholders.
