SEC Issues Wake-up Call On Climate-Change Disclosure

VIEWS: 3 PAGES: 1

The US Securities and Exchange Commission opened a can of worms with its decision to require companies to consider the effects of climate change when disclosing business risks to investors. It was a can that needed opening, however, in fairness to investors and to the long-term benefit of the companies themselves.

While collecting more data will have its costs, it will be even more costly for investors and companies to ignore material risks.
