Description

A coalition of academics, institutional investors and government officials is lobbying the SEC to spell out what and when companies must tell investors about ESG issues.

In a petition sent to the agency on October 1, professors Cynthia Williams of Osgoode Hall Law School at York University and Jill Fisch of the University of Pennsylvania Law School urge the commission to ‘initiate rulemaking to develop mandatory rules for public companies to disclose high-quality, comparable, decision-useful environmental, social and governance information.’
