Description

Institutional investors representing more than $5 trillion in assets are calling on the Securities and Exchange Commission to require public companies to uniformly disclose environmental, social and governance information.

In a rule-making petition filed Monday, a group of investors, state treasurers, public pension funds, unions, legal experts and ESG advocates asked the SEC "to promptly initiate rule-making to develop mandatory rules for public companies to disclose high-quality, comparable, decision-useful environmental, social and governance information."
