Clean Energy Coalition Contributes to Securities and Exchange Commission Work on ESG Disclosures
Washington, DC – The Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) submitted comments to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in response to their Request for Public Input on Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) and climate change disclosures.
“ESG disclosure is top of mind for many investors, especially in the energy sector,” said BCSE President Lisa Jacobson. “The BCSE applauds the leadership of the SEC in working to develop standards for ESG and climate disclosures, and for seeking stakeholder input. The development of transparent and actionable reporting methodologies will help investors make informed decisions and help more companies begin to actively report on ESG and climate change risks to investors. BCSE members have deep experience with ESG and climate change-related disclosures and appreciate the opportunity to share input as the SEC develops its approach.”
