The evolution of SEC disclosure ►

– The materiality of ESG information and its use by investors

ESG integration into investment decision-making has now hit an inflection point, with signatories of the Principles for Responsible Investment initiative reaching a combined AUM total of $59 trillion.

With the dramatic rise in investor interest in incorporating ESG factors into investment decision-making, companies are sitting up and taking notice. And yet, analysts often lack access to comparable, standardized information on the sustainability factors that impact value. While there has been a notable increase in the volume of sustainability reporting over the past several years, there is a strong push among investors for companies to disclose material ESG information in their SEC filings.

Join moderator Janine Guillot of SASB, and panelists Robert Herz, former Chairman of FASB, Rakhi Kumar of State Street Global Advisors, Malcolm Ryerse of Columbia Threadneedle Investments for a roundtable discussion on these topics and more.
Learning Objectives:
  • Gain a broader understanding of why investors care about ESG info and how investors use the information.
  • Learn about the current regulatory environment as it relates to corporate reporting on sustainability issues.
  • Understand the landscape and state of disclosure for climate-related risks.
