Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Jay Knight provided comments for an article in The Wall Street Journal about public company disclosures related to climate change risks. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is expected to announce a rule proposal on climate-related disclosures this year. In anticipation of that new proposal, the SEC has been sending comment letters to some companies asking for clarification about their climate change risks to help inform investors in their decision-making.

“Regulators are giving these disclosures a tougher look, which will likely result in additional comments going forward,” Jay said.
