“The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently approved rules requiring large publicly-traded companies to disclose certain climate-related information. These new rules aim to leverage investors to encourage public companies to address climate risks and reduce emissions. … Although well-intentioned, these rules are unlikely to make a meaningful long-term impact on emissions reduction.” (03/28/24)
