Response to SEC Request for Public Input Regarding Climate Change Disclosure Rules and Guidance (June 14, 2021)
The Church Alliance responded to the Securities and Exchange Commission’s request for information regarding climate change disclosure rules and guidance. The Church Alliance was in favor of establishing industry-specific standards to enable investors to access relevant data more efficiently. Several current standards were also suggested as helpful models for the Commission as it develops its disclosure framework. The Church Alliance also encouraged the Commission to design an ESG (environmental, social, and governance) disclosure framework that was broader than just climate change-related risks and opportunities.
