Companies Might Have to Disclose Their Carbon-Related Risks

Market regulators and economic officials in the U.S. and abroad are busy discussing possible new rules for reporting climate-related risks that companies face.

Many government officials, meanwhile, are concerned not just about the threat of such costs for individual companies, but the threat for entire financial systems. Among the most closely watched developments: a broad effort under way by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to re-examine its disclosure rules for public companies, including whether to require mandatory disclosure of risks related to climate change.
