The proposed rules, which build upon the SEC’s previous guidance on climate-related disclosures, are generally aligned with recommendations from the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and are designed to meet investor demands for useful information on climate-related risks and the corresponding financial implications.
